As a School Leader you will be a current employee of a participating school with experience of managing students both inside and outside the classroom. The role of School Leader remains pivotal both during the planning and fundraising stages of the programme and during the expedition itself. You will be motivated, with an enthusiasm for helping young people to learn and grow throughout the Expedition Programme.
During the expedition itself, your role will be pivotal in delivering pastoral care for Explorers and drawing in learning content from the classroom into the learning taking place on expedition.
The role of School Leader is currently available on our Expeditionary Year Programme - The concept for Expeditionary Year is to incorporate themes of learning relevant to the expedition throughout Year 10 in each participating school. At the end of the summer term, students will trade in their familiar learning environments for the Icelandic interior and a chance to learn experientially about cultures, environment, working with others and ultimately, to learn about themselves. The 3-week expedition will take young people out of their comfort zone in a challenging yet safe environment, with a real focus on their skills, learning and personal development.
