Over the past few years we have offered a school workshop programme to our member families across Scotland.  This has proved extremely successful and has helped to raise awareness of eczema in schools, build the confidence of children with eczema and reduce instances of bullying.  

Earlier this year we piloted school workshops to our members in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  The pilot was a great success and we are now in a position to launch our school workshop programme UK-wide. 

We are looking to recruit sessional workers to deliver the school workshops across the UK.  Sessional workers will be matched to schools within their travel areas to deliver workshops, following a standardised delivery model.  Travel areas will be discussed on appointment.  School workshops are around 1 hour in length; the salary reflects preparation and delivery time.
