Work Placement WWI Wrecks

Project Support Placement – School Materials Development

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, which is based in Aberystwyth, is looking to recruit an education focussed work placement for our exciting Heritage Lottery Fund supported U-boat project.  The project uses sound detection technology to image WWI wrecks lying on the seabed around Wales and is utilising historical research to tell the stories of those affected by the Great War.

The placement has been created as a development opportunity for a newly, or soon to be, qualified teacher to help deliver the educational legacy elements of the project.

The ideal candidate will be a Welsh speaking teaching/PGCE graduate who will help our project team develop science, maths and history resources for schools (key stage 3 & 4), linked to the project outputs and to the new Welsh curriculum.

The placement will run for 8 weeks over the summer and is full time, 37 hours per week, and can be worked on a flexible and/or part time basis.

We are offering a salary of £19,240 pro rata per annum.

For further information on the work of the project and on the placement, including an application pack, please go to our website at

The closing date for applications is 28 April 2019.
