As an Outdoor Educator on our NT programs, you will support students in diverse locations to learn more about themselves and others. You will help empower young people, develop persistence, resilience, creativity, emotional intelligence, teamwork and problem-solving skills. Not bad for a job, is it?
In 2021 the continued partnership between The Outdoor Education Group and Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation will provide opportunities to support programming in the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park.
These programs explore off limits areas of the park, provide unique insight to the culture of the area and are delivered working hand in hand with Djurrubu Rangers. Kakadu experiences range from off-trail, helicopter supported, bushwalking explorations of the Mt Brockman Plateau through to vehicle-based immersion tours visiting the more accessible regions of the Park.
In all OEG will have the potential to provide these unique experiences to almost 1000 students in 2021, with a season running from March through to October.
We are looking for staff with a genuine interest in the Kakadu landscape and connecting with the Mirarr traditional owners of the area.
Course Coordinator and Outdoor Educator roles are open to those that have program organisation and experience that speaks to the nature of the Jabiru Programs and the skill sets required. The application process has been designed to cover all programs and be transparent.
OEG will require applicants with either expedition and/ or residential experience as there will be opportunities for both styles of program.
Please note that if you have experience in residential and journey-based programs, you can apply for the full length of programming.
We will require a logbook to apply the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process, if you are applying externally.
