Our programme Coastal Curriculum reflects the diverse nature of PCF’s work relating to coastal issues and opportunities. Workshops can be in school or at a coastal site, and we are happy to work across all key stages.
- Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM)
PCF is the home of Marine Energy Wales (MEW) and the Marine Energy Test Area (META) project. We can offer an in-school workshop suitable for KS2 or KS3 which develop pupils understanding of renewable energy and the development of marine energy generation.
With support from MEW members, we can arrange field trips for your school to marine energy devices so pupils can see the innovation in this exciting sector for themselves and meet with people at the forefront of this emerging sector.
We can organise field trips to the coast for pupils and students. Pupils can find out how geography and history have shaped our coast and communities. With expert contributors from PCF’s network, groups can observe the processes at work and the management of our changing coastline. There are opportunities to study the coastal history, current human use of marine environment and its impacts.
- Careers and Business
PCF offers links to coastal businesses from large employers such as the Port of Milford Haven to smaller enterprises in a wide range of sectors. Pembrokeshire’s location offers challenges to creating a vibrant economy but there are opportunities and rewarding careers by or on the sea.
PCF’s programme is led by Tim Brew, a qualified teacher and STEM ambassador. PCF’s network and Marine Energy Wales members provide a valuable network of individuals and organisations involved around our coast to give your pupils an authentic insight into their work.
