Delegates at the showcase included staff from other schools and academies including Laxdale Primary School, London Nautical School, Atlantic Academy Portland, Budmouth Academy Weymouth, Holbrook Academy, Bohunt Priory School and Bohunt School Worthing.
The event took place over two days and included presentations on curriculum, careers and how to involve maritime in subject such as Science, Design Technology, and Humanities.
The Maritime Futures curriculum was developed by Cowes Enterprise College to bring the wealth of careers opportunities in the maritime sector into the classroom, and marry the rigorous knowledge that forms the science, technology, history and geography curriculum with employer encounters and meaningful careers education.
Rachel Kitley, Principal at Cowes Enterprise Academy told the Island Echo:
“We are so proud of our Maritime Futures curriculum, and so pleased to be able to share this with other coastal schools and organisations. This has had a hugely positive impact on our students and we look forward to continuing to develop and share this in the future.”
