We’re on the look out for enthusiastic and inspiring freelance biodiversity and environmental art tutors. These exciting roles will connect you with people wanting to share your passion for biodiversity, especially natural history subjects and related art. We offer competitive pay rates for delivering training courses online and at venues across the UK, plus expenses and contribution to producing learning resources.

You’ll join a lively network of associate tutors delivering training courses with the national charity, the Field Studies Council (FSC); a leader provider of environment education. Every year, FSC delivers hundreds of Eco-Skills courses for adults and young people (age 16+) across the UK.

Our team’s success will excite people to get to know (deep breath) vertebrates, invertebrates, flowering plants, non-flowering plants, fungi, lichen, marine life, field skills, environmental art and other subjects.

Our courses include support for learners (including mentoring opportunities) and links to partner organisations and FSC’s famous wildlife ID guides. Our learners also earn recognition and take on personal and professional roles that benefit themselves and the natural environment.

The successful tutors will have demonstrable expertise and passion in one or more subjects and enthusiasm for tutoring people to increase their skills.

FSC uses learning frameworks to allow learners to progress through subjects, so training experience would be an advantage.

Our tutors work with team of engagement/training officers and course co-ordinators.
