Learning Volunteer Programme
'Living in London, the Museum was like a magnet for me. I wanted to join a team that could inspire the same awe in the public that I experienced when I was growing up.'
Nathalie, Learning Volunteer
Our Learning Volunteers bring Museum handling specimens into our galleries and exhibitions to create unforgettable learning experiences. They support visitors of all ages and backgrounds to investigate the natural world.
The Learning Volunteer Programme offers anyone over the age of 18 the support and training to develop their confidence, team work, communication, and knowledge so they can interact with visitors through a range of hands-on learning activities.
You do not need to have experience in museums, science, learning, or education to apply. All you need is curiosity and interest in nature, enjoy working in a team, and be willing to learn and help others learn about nature
We welcome applications from everyone – diversity, inclusion and the feeling of belonging matters to us. Our Learning Volunteers bring their individuality and uniqueness to our fun and stimulating environment.
We are looking for volunteers who can provide at least two days a month, 10:30 to 16.00 for six months or more. We are particularly looking for volunteers available on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.
