The Horniman Museum and Gardens in south east London has been open since Victorian times, when the tea trader and philanthropist, Frederick John Horniman first opened his house and extraordinary collection of objects to the local community. Since then, our collection has grown significantly and includes internationally important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history gallery – all surrounded by 16 acres of beautiful Gardens offering breathtaking views across London.
The Horniman provides learning experiences for a diverse range of visitors, including delivering enquiry-led, object-based learning sessions to over 31,000 school participants each year, from Early Years to Key Stage 5. The Schools Casual Tutor will deliver these learning sessions, using our Handling Collection, on a range of curriculum-linked and collection-based themes.
You will have an excellent track record of delivering high-quality hands-on learning experiences to pupils of all ages, in a classroom or non-formal setting. Your knowledge of schools’ needs will be complemented by experience using objects to support learning. A motivated and creative communicator, you will love the challenge of learning and delivering diverse programmes.
