A unique and exciting project-based role has arisen for an individual interested in an internship or secondment.
The Earth Museum’s Creative Global Citizen Educators are key supporting roles bringing cross-curriculum programmes into the classroom that help inspire and equip young people of today to become global citizens of the future. They deliver cross-curriculum lesson plans that provide learning across citizenship, history, geography, computing, art and design, and STEM subjects.
You will be working with The Earth Museum and Gosport and Fareham MAT (GFM) to support delivery of Take Two Islands. It will be hosted by and based at GFMAT and involve working with 50 KS3 Global Curriculum learners in the co-production of digital place-based map and immersive learning resources, centred on stories of migration on the Isle of Wight and Rapa Nui Easter Island. The post-holder may also provide support and advice for delivery of a similar programme at an after-school club on the Isle of Wight and will manage a programme of interviews with teachers at GFMAT regarding cross-curriculum working and The Earth Museum model of delivery.
As well as being an integral part of the GFMAT learning team, the postholder will work with a small team at The Earth Museum including a creative curator, digital developer, and Rapanui heritage adviser.
We are seeking an individual who is passionate about inspiring young people and might be embarking on a teaching / cultural heritage education career with an energy for innovation. Although a teaching qualification is not essential, you will bring good evidence of knowledge, confidence and effectiveness of having taught previously. Having a keen appetite for self-development and a strong interest in cross-curriculum learning will be essential, as well as demonstrating good background knowledge/ interest in history, geography, global citizenship, digital technologies and creativity.
We would be interested in receiving an application if you:
- are passionate about ensuring all children have access to the provision and support to enable them to be successful individuals
- are able to prioritise and manage your time effectively
- have a strong commitment to safeguarding
- are committed to nurture a child’s happiness and enjoyment of school and life
- are an enthusiastic individual with a good sense of humour
- build positive relationships with pupils and staff
- are a good team player who is able to develop good relationships with the people they work with

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.
