Learning Freelancers (Schools Programme)

The Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) is one of London's most famous riverside landmarks. The iconic buildings include the unique Painted Hall and neoclassical Chapel. In addition the Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre houses our dedicated learning space, the Clore Learning Centre, and a permanent exhibition that tells the story of Greenwich.

The Learning team use the inspiring history, art and architecture of the ORNC and the surrounding Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site to offer a range of place and time based formal and informal learning opportunities.

We are seeking to recruit a small team of Learning Freelancers to help deliver our award-winning primary school programme. Our busy programme welcomes over 7,000 school children each year to explore subjects including history, art and design, maths and citizenship. Workshops and projects are developed in conjunction with teachers and children, and evaluated on a rolling basis to ensure that best practice is embedded throughout the workshop structure and delivery. Sessions encourage active learning by providing opportunities for creative responses through art, drama and creative writing.
