Ford Castle is a Medieval castle set in the rolling countryside of Northumberland, with exciting activities hidden within the grounds. We provide group activity holidays for children who will adventure and explore their way into outdoor education as they enjoy activity sessions in a supportive environment with stunning scenery, where history comes to life.
Steeped in history, the castle itself has belonged to the Lord Joicey family since 1907 and sits on the Ford and Etal Estates. It has been operated since 1956 as an Outdoor Education Centre, first by Northumberland County Council and since 2012 by the Chateau Beaumont Group.
Joining our team at Ford is an excellent opportunity. You'll experience some of the most demanding clients you'll ever meet, have great fun and make some great friends. Ensuring the children have the best time of their lives is paramount, so we want instructors who can really inspire our young visitors and act as role-models.
Whether you are instructing an outdoor activity, leading a field study or guiding an excursion we expect you to enjoy yourself and be the best you can be. We provide various activity training opportunities as well as the chance to spend some time at our French Centre or to get involved in our EFL work.
If you think working in a young, dynamic team at a real Medieval Castle sounds exciting, then you're right. What are you waiting for?
