Through our OCT Learning Outreach programme, we’ve made many of our Ocean-linked activities available to teachers and educational event organisers at venues other than the National Marine Aquarium, including: 

  • Education institutions (e.g. Schools, Colleges & Universities) 
  • Outdoor environments (e.g. Beaches, estuaries & rocky shores  
  • Third party private hire venues (e.g. Scout halls, civic centres & libraries) 
  • Large scale events & conferences (e.g. national exhibitions, conferences & student events) 

We understand that finding the right fit is important, when it comes to outsourcing your education, and that’s why we’ve put together a tried and tested learning outreach program that we’re confident can cater for any occasion – from single class workshops to multiday national events support.
