1st April 2020

The Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City (HYMC) team are looking to recruit creative and enthusiastic teachers to join our brand new Teachers’ Panel.

Over the next few years we will be working closely with Heritage Learning – who manage and deliver all of the creative and cultural learning programmes across Hull’s eleven museum, gallery and History Centre sites – to develop a learning programme which will engage children and young people with the city’s amazing seafaring stories.

Interactive learning will be a main focus at the maritime sites

This programme will include outreach activities, as well as five new immersive workshop experiences for schools to enjoy when the Hull Maritime Museum, the North End Shipyard and the Arctic Corsair reopen.

Charlie Trzeciak, Schools and Community Learning Officer, said: “To help us to create a learning offer that will inspire and exhilarate, we would like to invite Hull’s primary school teachers to become members of our new Primary School Teachers’ Panel. Over the course of six meetings between April 2020 and February 2023 panel members will develop ideas, review drafts for, and raise awareness of our schools learning programme.

“This is a great opportunity to shape the learning programme of the city’s biggest heritage project? If you’ve ever wished that the Hull Maritime Museum offered a workshop in which your pupils could build and test their own sailing boats, now is the time to say so!”

Teachers will play a key role to develop a learning programme

With kind support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, participating schools will be reimbursed for their teachers’ time and get priority access to upcoming HYMC projects and activities. Panel members will also get a £20 Amazon voucher for every panel meeting they attend and will also have the chance to take part in exciting CPD sessions.

Please note that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are looking to hold our first meetings via video conference.
