Job Opportunity - Development Officer, SEDA Academy

SEDA Academy
Development Officer - Job Opportunity

We are looking for an enthusiastic self-motivated person with a talent for organisation for the development of an exciting new practical education course on green building techniques

SEDA has received funding from the Big Lottery Fund (Investing in Ideas) to develop a Scottish Ecological Design and Build School. The grant application was submitted in partnership with LoveMilton who are building new community facilities in Milton as a community self–build. The new buildings will be constructed through a series of courses which will form a pilot for the school, which will be called SEDA Academy.

It will be the role of the development officer to work alongside the LoveMilton team to develop the courses they are already running, identifying and bringing in expertise from the SEDA network and elsewhere and bringing the courses up to a standard where people from outside Milton would be prepared to pay to attend the courses. As this project is a pilot, part of your role will be to initially develop the course with LoveMilton staff and SEDA members, monitor and evaluate the courses as they run and propose how the project could develop and continue, identifying possible funding streams.

It is anticipated that 80% of the school coursework will be practical hands-on demonstration and learning, using the live LoveMilton construction project as the subject. People attending the courses will be assumed to have no prior experience or further education.
