Specialist Instructor


The Outdoor Education Group, Elidon


Are you driven by a passion for learning through adventurous experiences in the outdoors; do you value opportunities to support others as they challenge themselves; do you believe in the power of community to build and create positive experiences for Self, Others and the Natural World.


Established in 1984 and celebrating 30 years of experience and expertise in delivering positive, life changing, outdoor learning opportunities to approx 20,000 young people a year across both Victoria and NSW, the Outdoor Education Group is now embarking on a new adventure…and we may be looking for you.


Traditional rites-of-passage in outdoor education have often been drawn from extended expeditions. At the Outdoor Education Group this is an approach that still sits at the heart of our work with young people. Expedition leaders require not only a high degree of first hand outdoor leadership experience in remote situations, but also a sound understanding of facilitation strategies that can develop and nurture a diverse community of individuals over a 7+ day period. With your wide range of group management skills you have developed a sound understanding of outdoor education, with the ability to teach camp craft and sustainability practices and the capacity to facilitate the daily activities required for an expedition.


As a specialist instructor you will play a vital role in coaching and mentoring best practice in the field whilst also providing training opportunities for our staff. You will bring a depth of experience directly related to outdoor program delivery that is client focused and quality driven. You will also possess a higher level of skill in key outdoor pursuit areas across a range of program types and environments. You have the ability to employ a variety of communication and facilitation strategies that motivates participation and supports and engages the development of positive group dynamics.  With your sound knowledge of educational delivery in the outdoors, supporting your demonstrated risk management procedures and leadership judgment, you are able to build relationships to co-lead in the field and across the organization.


If you have the desire to continue to broaden your facilitation and leadership strategies on expedition style outdoor learning programs and bring positive experiences to young people across a variety of learning environments then please apply now.
