We are currently looking for school volunteer guides at the National Museum of Flight.

Location: National Museum of Flight, East Fortune 

Opportunity: The role of the Schools Volunteer Guide is to help teachers and their pupils navigate the site and exhibitions and make the most of their visit. You will introduce young people to objects and stories, many of which focus on the history of the two World Wars, and the science and technology of flight. Full training is given to volunteers to allow them to guide school pupils and teachers around the hangars, and other exhibitions as part of their visit as well as assisting museum staff with delivering specific workshops.

When required: School term times only, 10:00 – 14:00 – depending on school’s bookings and volunteer availability. Additional time may also required for meetings and training.

Closing date for applications: Wednesday 29 March

See the role description for full details of the tasks and the application form to note your availability.

I enjoy working with the school parties as I meet lots of interesting people. Our workshops assist the pupils in understanding various purposes of flight as well as aspects of the Second World War, before introducing them to the aircraft. I thoroughly recommend volunteering.
