As the voyage takes place during term-time we also need your permission for them to be aboard. There are many opportunities for the whole school to benefit from the voyage. Our Youth Scheme has been designed to link into and compliment the National Curriculum and every activity on board can help to deepen the understanding of the core subjects both to the participant and the class as a whole. We will work with schools to develop resources they can use in the classroom whilst the voyage is underway.
From the outset the Youth Scheme will use a number of social media platforms, along with email newsletters written by the participants to engage with a wider audience. Schools will be able to keep in contact with ‘their’ student and questions can be sent to them via email to be answered during the voyage allowing the rest of the class and school to benefit. The ship is also fitted with a tracker allowing live position updates to be displayed on an interactive chart within our own website and young people will also write daily logs to be uploaded.
