In our last post we told you about the One Hull of a Boat story and how it perfectly linked with education and employability; from the team work and self management of the group who spearheaded it (Business Springboard, another great organisation who have signed up to the Charter) to the application of numeracy and use of information technology demonstrated by the crew.
We’re pleased to report back to say that a huge amount of work has been done in a very short space of time. The crew have visited a number of local schools and an education pack has been produced and distributed to a huge number of KS2 students across the City.
The ‘One Hull of a Lesson’ booklet, which is added below, features a diary of the events spanning the next 5 days as well as links to art, geography, maths and English. We hope to receive some great pieces of work we can feature right here.
Please feel free to download your own copy and to share this blog with others.
Importantly, One Hull of a Boat doesn’t end in the classroom or stood on the side of the Humber. Typhoo Tea, the sponsor of one of the competitors has put up a tent in Queen Victoria Square running workshops for children and offering free tea, all manned with learners from Cityworks Training (another Charter sign-up). After visiting the tent ourselves over lunch, it’s clear to see that these young people are learning some invaluable employability skills that will hopefully serve them well in the future.
We look forward to cheering the team on with you over the coming days!
