Guide Dogs to train a user instructor; EDUCATION newsbulletin.
Guide Dogs Cymru is aiming to bring its services to more remote areas of the community by taking on a trainee mobility instructor.
The chosen candidate will help blind and visually impaired people in North Wales to regain their independence with the help of a dog.
A guide dog mobility instructor helps to build the extraordinary partnership between a dog and its new blind owner. Candidates must be physically fit, as the job involves walking long distances.
The successful applicant will undergo three years' training at various Guide Dogs centres before qualifying as a fully-fledged instructor. Visit guidedogs.org.uk
