The Migration Museum produces inspiring exhibitions, events, education, community and public engagement programmes, to shine a light on the many ways that migration to and from Britain across the ages has shaped who we are.

We are currently based in the heart of Lewisham Shopping Centre in south-east London, where we welcome over 4,000 primary, secondary, university and adult learners a year to engage with our exhibitions and the themes we explore via facilitated workshops and self-directed visits. We also deliver online sessions, as well as training and CPD for teachers across the UK.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a passionate individual with experience of engaging young people to work with our Learning team to develop the scope and reach of our education programme in line with the vision and values of the Migration Museum.

We are particularly looking for someone who has experience with secondary-age students (Key Stages 3-5), to complement the existing skills and experience of our Learning team.

You will help us to plan, book-in, facilitate and evaluate interactive education visits at the museum and deliver online sessions to schools and learners from across the UK and internationally. You will also help us to ensure our exhibitions reach their potential in aligning with the objectives of our education programme and develop resources and activities that enhance current and future exhibitions for learners.

We are at an exciting stage of our development as a museum and our position in the heart of a busy shopping centre allows us to reach new and bigger audiences in innovative ways. Demand for our education programme always exceeds supply, and we look forward to your support in reaching thousands more young people with these important themes.

If you are a passionate self-starter wanting to bring your ideas to a small but dynamic organisation, we hope you will apply to join our team
