About The Prince’s Foundation

The Prince’s Foundation provides holistic solutions to challenges facing the world today. We champion a sustainable approach to how we live our lives and build our communities, we run a diverse programme of education and training for all ages and backgrounds, and we regenerate and care for places where communities thrive and that visitors enjoy.

We work nationally and internationally but at the heart of our organization is the heritage-led regeneration of the Dumfries House estate and its wider community, where our principles and philosophies are explored and put into practice. The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by our charity founder HRH The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales’s philosophy of harmony: that by understanding the balance, the order and the relationships between ourselves and the natural world we can create a more sustainable future.

The Role:

The post holder will assist on the development, implementation and delivery of high-quality educational experiences including school workshops, short courses, teacher training programmes and public events related to Horticulture and Sustainable Food Systems.

The Horticulture and Sustainable Food Systems education offering is currently delivered through practical day workshops and longer form courses covering our key theme areas: The Journey of Our Food, Horticulture Skills, Life Systems in the Garden and Field to Fork cooking. These are targeted predominantly to primary and early secondary school learners with a view to expand into further secondary. The curriculum is based out of the Pierburg Education Building and the Kauffman Education Garden on Dumfries House Estate and aims to provide all learners with an understanding of sustainable food production and consumption practices alongside knowledge of career opportunities available in the sector. Due to the holistic nature of our education strategy, the post holder will have the opportunity to work with colleagues on interdisciplinary programmes from the wider education team including Farming and Rural Skills, STEM, Activity and Adventure, Hospitality, Textiles and Building Crafts.
