Creekside Education Trust – looking for a new CET Coordinator

We are recruiting for a new CET Coordinator. After six years at Creekside Education Trust (and 11 years in the UK) I have come to the difficult decision to leave London and move back to South Africa to be closer to family. This means that I will be leaving this wonderful charity in early October 2017.

I personally want to thank you for your interest in and support of CET while I was the Coordinator. I feel very privileged and grateful for my time at Creekside.

We are now looking for the right person to lead the charity through an exciting time of further development, including the Centre expansion and diversifying of programmes.

Please help us in circulating this opportunity amongst potential candidates.

>> The Job Advert and Application Pack are available through this link and on our website.

Note: Application Deadline is on Monday 3rd July, 12pm midday.

Best wishes,
Bettina Kabutz, Coordinator

A Curious Entomologist Training – £35pp
Saturday 22nd / Sunday 23rd July, 10am – 4.30pmCurious? Why curious? Entomologists might, at first, seem a bit eccentric, but they pursue their study of the natural world with a passion fuelled by curiosity.

Insects are everywhere. They are so many, and so varied — fascinating, beautiful, mysterious, bizarre. Through their mind-boggling biodiversity they offer us a window into the ecological complexity of life on Earth, and give us a powerful insight of the workings of the natural world.

Using simple methods and materials provided, this 1-day workshop will look at techniques to find and observe a wide variety of different insects, then how to preserve sample specimens for examination under the microscope.

Event organised and hosted by LB Lewisham.
