We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated person to join our well-established Learning Team. As a learning professional you will be responsible for developing and delivering a range of heritage learning sessions and resources to primary school pupils, as well as sessions for other age groups including adults.

The South West Heritage Trust has an established subscription learning service which is offered to schools across Somerset.
You will need a passion for engaging people with their heritage, have strong communication skills and an ability to work alongside a wide range of schools, partner organisations and the public. You will also have opportunities to develop and run specific projects with groups of schools and other local groups.
The South West Heritage Trust is a charity which delivers a broad range of heritage services across Somerset and Devon that were previously delivered by local authorities.
