Do you have a passion for heritage and education? Can you help us develop our education offering?

The Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre (SJHC) is seeking people with experience of museum and heritage education, and individuals with teaching experience, to join a new Education Advisory group. The SJHC runs visits for primary and secondary schools, using the historic building of Garnethill Synagogue and archive collections to support learning about Judaism, migration, refugees and the Holocaust. We would like the group to help us assess our current education offer and develop new resources for formal and informal education. For more information about our offering:

The group will report to the SJHC Manager, who runs the Centre’s educational services, and act as a support to the Manager. No previous experience of being on a Board or advisory group is required.

What’s Involved

The group will meet 4 times per year in Glasgow. There may be occasional meetings via Zoom. This is an unpaid role, but travel expenses can be reimbursed.

How to apply

Please send us your CV and a personal statement (up to 500 words, or a 2-minute video recording). In your brief statement please tell us a bit about yourself, why you’re interested in becoming a member of the group, and what you think you could bring to the SJHC.

Applications should be submitted via email to the SJHC Manager Kerry Patterson by 5pm on Friday 31st May 2024. For any questions or an informal chat, please contact the Manager by email or phone 0141 332 4151.
