Teacher wanted for Barrow summer camp
Last updated at 15:48, Tuesday, 27 May 2014
MORE than £20,000 of funding has been secured for a Barrow summer camp for youngsters, but organisers are still looking for a teacher.
Furness Summer Camp Steering Group have planned a summer camp at Furness College in August for 50 Year Five pupils across the Furness area.
Organisers have said the £30 per hour, 27 hours a week, teaching job has only attracted a handful of applicants.
Inside Out Enterprise director Neil Doherty, 45, of Holbeck, said: “We have had a few applications so far, but we want as many as possible so that we can find the right person for the job.
“They need to be good at inspiring people and be a qualified teacher. It is desirable but not essential that they have some experience teaching Year Five pupils. They need to be able to deliver fun activities to bring literacy and numeracy to life.
“I’m sure part of the reason we’ve not had a massive response so far is that teachers are not keen to give up some of their summer holidays.”
Responsibilities include putting together a three-week programme consisting of two lots of two-sessions a day of numeracy and literacy lessons.
Local businesses as well as charities including the Francis C Scott Trust and Sir John Fisher Foundation, will contribute towards camp costs.
Aside from learning, children will spend two hours a day taking part in physical activities including rock climbing, activities and a tour of BAE Systems.
Barrow MP John Woodcock said: “Furness Summer Camp is a pioneering project offering pupils an innovative exposure to literacy and numeracy skills while also taking part in fun and exciting outdoor activities.
“The lead teacher will hold the key role of inspiring and motivating Year Five pupils. We will be delighted to receive more applications for this important post.”
