ABOUT US

The Earth Museum is a not-for-profit cultural heritage organisation that aims to inspire future generations of digital global citizens, equipping with life skills that help us all to understand and look after our planet better. Our work seeks to blend local and global heritage connections with UN Sustainable Development Goals and world citizen voices to create entertaining place-based digital learning experiences. We experiment across curriculum subjects particularly at KS2 and KS3, and have been working in partnership with Gosport and Fareham MAT since 2019.

Gosport and Fareham MAT is the first localised Multi-Academy Trust established in Hampshire. Comprising 6 schools, the GFMAT is a local solution that champions the needs of
Gosport and Fareham learners across all phases of education: Secondary, Primary and SEN. Its educational offer includes a well-established KS3 year 8 Global Curriculum, of which this
project will be part for 2022-23.

Take Two (UNESCO) Islands is a pathfinder learning project that explores what it means to be a global citizen using two island histories and environments as catalyst. The Isle of Wight is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve off the South Coast of England and Rapa Nui (Easter Island) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Pacific Ocean. Both have thought-provoking histories of natural and cultural migration with legacies into the present, and from which we can learn about the future.

KS3 students at GFMAT will explore these themes collaboratively and co-produce two digital learning resources while doing so – a 2D interactive digital history map and a 3D immersive Time Talisman explorer quest. Students will also have the unique opportunity to engage with Rapanui heritage expertise and digital students at the University of Winchester.

Safeguarding statement

GFM Education is committed to safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.

A ‘prohibition from teaching’ check will be completed for all shortlisted teaching candidates including those applying for a teaching assistant/Cover Supervisor/Other work deemed directly involved with pupils where it is indicated that they have qualified teacher status or have previously worked as a teacher. We will also consider carrying out an online search as part of due diligence on shortlisted candidates as recommended by KCSiE.

All successful candidates will be subject to a Disclosure & Barring Service check along with other relevant employment checks.

It is a criminal offence to apply for or accept a position (paid or unpaid) working with children if you are excluded from such work by virtue of a court order or exclusion by the DBS. Although a criminal record involving offences against children is likely to debar you from appointment of this type of post, the existence of other criminal convictions will not necessarily be a bar to employment.
