Bring the natural world to life! Fantastic opportunities for geography, geology and ecology graduates to work in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Jurassic Coast.

PGL offers residential Field Studies courses to primary, secondary and A Level guests. Using your knowledge from your Environmental Science, Geology, Geography or other relevant degree, you'll work with a group of up to 12 children or teenagers, taking sole responsibility for their Field Studies sessions. With the centre and surrounding areas of scientific interest as their classroom, your group will have the chance to search for freshwater invertebrates, dress up as historical characters or discover fossils of organisms that sunk into the Jurassic mud over 160 million years ago!

All study units are as practical as possible with groups working largely outdoors. You'll work as part of our Study Course Instructor team and may find yourself working across our product range from time to time, assisting with Science, Maths or IT sessions too. In addition, we run Physics and Chemistry based Science courses, Maths courses and ICT courses, all aimed at primary school groups. Together they are known as our Study Courses. Our Field Studies Instructors are also trained to deliver our core land-based activities including abseiling, mountain biking and climbing so you will lead these sessions when not on field studies duty.

We offer a competitive wage, paid monthly, meals and on-site accommodation provided and FREE staff uniform.   


We’re looking for people holding a relevant degree, or with experience of teaching Field Studies in a similar environment, with basic IT skills and the proven ability to work as a member of a fast-paced team.

You will ideally also be able to demonstrate experience of working or volunteering with children/young people. We look for applications from people who can demonstrate energy and enthusiasm for education within a range of subject matter and who have the ability to relate to young people and make learning fun.

You’ll need a high level of initiative and commitment, boundless enthusiasm and a true desire to work with children of all ages. You must be adaptable, flexible and have a desire to acquire new knowledge. This role is particularly good for anyone looking to start their career in the outdoor industry, thinking about a career in teaching or for energetic teachers looking to maximise the practical aspects of their job.
