London Transport Museum explores the story of London and its transport system over the last 200 years, highlighting the powerful link between transport and the growth of modern London, culture and society since 1800.

We offer a comprehensive programme of learning sessions at our Covent Garden Museum, and have worked hard in recent years to ensure that we provide a range of high-quality learning opportunities and experiences for young learners.

We are seeking three enthusiastic freelance educators to join our team, delivering a brand new facilitated learning session for Early Years pupils themed around our popular All Aboard galleries.

The sessions will support the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum for pupils aged three to four years old. The session has been developed in partnership with local nurseries and will be running from January 2017.

Applicants will need to be available for a minimum of one Thursday per month during term-time from January 2017, and also for training on Friday 9 December 2016 (14:30-18:00). Interviews will be held on or around 25 November 2016.
