Associated Work of ESEU

Ambassadorial Scheme:  Thanks to support from the Department for Trade and Industry, ESEU facilitators were able to support a wider range of events in addition to ESEU’s standard workshops for teachers, from 2003–2005.
Britain’s Journey Animation:  ESEU has worked with Cambridge Paleomap Services to produce a continental reconstruction animation program for the last 450 Ma, called ‘Britain’s Journey’, it has northern Europe as its focal point and has been specifically designed as a teaching aid for schools. 

Britain’s Journey has since been updated by ESEU (2004) and has been produced to accompany the in-service training that is provided by ESEU to secondary schools throughout the country.   If you would like a free copy on a CD Rom, that also contains a whole host of invaluable KS3 and KS4 teaching material, simply get in touch with ESEU to book an CPD workshop for your school and the workshop facilitator will leave a copy with you afterwards.
