Service Description

Part of Beach Academy's 'Teach on the Beach' 
Training Programme Develop yourselves, and your school curriculum, with Beach Academy’s own ‘Teach on the Beach’ Training Programme. As the only specialist Beach Teachers in the UK, here at Beach Academy we firmly believe that there is no need for expensive and time consuming courses to teach on a beach. As teachers (or training to be) you are qualified and already have the tools to deliver in a classroom. What you need is expert guidance on how to teach in a new outdoor environment. You simply need a new toolkit. We will train you on how to use beaches as an educational resource and an amazing natural space to deliver lessons outdoors. We will give you the confidence to take learning outside, with top tips and tricks to save you time and money. We have tried and tested teaching on the beach every day. We know what works and what not to waste your time on. There are an abundance of learning opportunities beyond the school gate and we are here to help you. Our trainers are all qualified teachers and marine science educators trained in delivering beach & coastal school sessions, environmental education, marine science and ocean literacy. As specialists teaching outside on beaches in all seasons, our training programme offers tried-and-tested outdoor tips, skills, secrets and activities that will inspire new educators as well as seasoned pros. All you need is what we have; a love of the coast, resilience, adaptability, humour, grit, an open mind and the right clothing! What’s in the programme a) 1-day ‘Introduction to Beach Teaching’ course. b) Half-day ‘Coastal CPD’ workshops.
