About the role

This Learning Producer role is crucial to helping the Natural History Museum realise our aim of making our collections and science accessible to the widest possible audiences. Responsible for delivering and growing ‘Dawnosaurs’, our popular early morning event programme for neurodiverse children (funded by the Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation), this role will also work on wider SEND and neurodiversity initiatives, events and resources to enhance access in the Museum’s Learning offer and support the Learning team to develop their practice.

There is also opportunity to scope and develop opportunities and provision for neurodiverse young people aged 16 and up, working with local organisations and beyond to draw up what this offer could look like.

About you

You’ll have experience in developing accessible and inspiring science learning activities for children and young people in an informal setting, have experience working with neurodiverse children and young people and passionate about developing accessible opportunities, events and resources. Organised, able to work across teams, proactive and experienced in delivering events, you’ll also be passionate about the natural world and be excited about our mission to create advocates for the planet.
