Just the job Our Key Stage 3 education resources teach 11-14 year olds about the huge maritime sector and how Trinity House keeps ships and seafarers safe at sea. Buoys, beacons and bananas Our Key Stage 3 resources use slides, videos, worksheets and games to give pupils a more advanced understanding of the role the maritime sector plays in the UK’s prosperity, and the huge range of diverse, interesting and important jobs that keep food and goods moving in support of Britain’s economy. Pupils will learn how Trinity House keeps ships and seafarers safe by providing a mix of aids to navigation and training for seafarers, keeping the movement of commercial shipping safe, constant and vital at a time when globalisation has made the world a smaller and more connected place. Pupils will also be challenged to work within a team to address and solve design problems given to them, developing specifications for innovative and functional products that respond to stakeholder needs.

Britain as an island nation Our Key Stage 2 education resources teach 7-11 year olds about the impact of globalisation on our lives and the roles played by shipping and Trinity House. Buoys, beacons and bananas Our Key Stage 2 resources use slides, videos, worksheets and games to teach pupils that the UK is as an island nation reliant on trade links with the rest of the world; as such, the nation’s maritime sector has a vast range of job types, including seafarers, engineers, designers, port operators and more. Pupils will be able to think about how these roles work at sea and on shore, and understand that Trinity House provides training for young people who want to be seafarers to ensure they can undertake their work safely and efficiently at sea. Pupils will also learn about the role of aids to navigation such as lighthouses and buoys in keeping ships and seafarers safe at sea, and explore their own ideas about designing visual systems to convey messages to mariners about safe passages and hazards. Key words: Safety, mariner, maritime, shipping, navigation, importing, exporting, manufactured, economy, trade, globalisation, transportation, connected, seafarers, buoys, vessels, industries, maritime, lighthouse
