Since 1998, the Ocean Conservation Trust has been providing an exciting and engaging learning programme, using the Ocean as a hook for teachers to deliver all subjects of the curriculum. The programme is co-created with teachers and consists of sessions and workshops that support curriculum-based learning at all key stages and abilities.
We are all connected to the Ocean, however far we live from it, and if we Think Ocean a little more in our daily lives, we can help to protect its future. There is much work to be done to ensure that the Ocean is a topic taught in all schools across the country and that no child finishes their school career without being Ocean literate – in other words, with an understanding of how the Ocean impacts them and their lives, and how their actions, in turn, impact upon it.
We have forged a reputation for excellence in informal education, priding ourselves in delivering fun, interactive learning experiences both at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth and within schools around the UK. Our outstanding team capture the imagination of learners of all ages.
