ABOUT THE ROLE

The Diana Award Anti-Bulling Ambassador Programme is seeking a freelance facilitator on a four-month contract to deliver our Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme in primary and secondary schools throughout the United Kingdom. If you have previous experience of delivering training and facilitating to young people, apply today!

 

  • To date, the Anti-Bulling Ambassador Programme has trained over 40,000 young people throughout the UK. The programme engages and mobilises young people and staff in social action to tackle the issue of bullying behaviours.
  • Training for the Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme is primarily delivered in schools via large (up to 150 young people) training events, but we also deliver remote sessions using online platforms. This role will largely focus on our in-person training offer, so willingness to travel extensively across the UK, with overnight stays, is a necessity. Most training events have around 60-100 young people in attendance.
  • Most of our training days are delivered by 2x Facilitators, so the successful candidate will be facilitating closely with another member of the Training Team. (Please note: from time to time, solo delivery may be required, for example if a training day has fewer young people signed up than usual or if government COVID restrictions change)
  • All training content and materials will be provided to you and we anticipate a short induction period for the successful candidate to visit a training day to see this in action, before commencing delivery.
