General:

An Instructor at any of our EcoTraining Camps will be responsible for the general management and running of the camps. This includes the planning and management of maintenance on infrastructure, vehicles and equipment. Instructors are also responsible for all firearms and ammunition, and they are to make sure all firearms are safe, well-maintained and in good working order.

Instructors are also to liaise with Reserve Management on concession matters.

Each camp has a cook, cleaner, and camp coordinator. Cooks and Cleaners report to Camp the Coordinators, who report to the Head Instructor, and if there is no Head Instructor present, they report to the Assistant Instructor. There are also students in camp on work experience placement or a volunteer basis. Instructors are responsible for making sure these students are mentored, and their development programmes are followed

Training:

The most important part of an Instructor position is to provide an inspirational and immersive learning experience to all course participants in order for them to reconnect to nature. Instructors need to plan and facilitate the daily activities. They also need to ensure the correct academic requirements are met regarding lectures, lecture content, tests, and assessments and that the required administration processes are correctly followed and completed.

If you are interested in the position, please send your CV to Wilhelm Espach at [email protected].
