Tees Valley Educational Resources
Follow this link to access the resources: https://sparkteesvalley.com/home-school-resources/
Schools are in partial shutdown and parents and carers are home schooling. The resources on these pages provide opportunities to learn about some of the exciting developments, issues and opportunities in the Tees Valley. Research strongly suggests that children who have a wider understanding of their local area, particularly businesses and opportunities that exist for them, do better at school and earn more in later life. These resources combine local awareness raising with activities and challenges to engage pupils across a wide age range. Come back every day for more resources and click on the links below each week to access new activities three times a week.

The Importance of STEM to UK Maritime Industry
The maritime industry particularly looks for applicants with STEM-related qualifications to enable recruits to keep up with the ever increasing technological advances, or to have a sound understanding of mathematics for the marine financial area.
Teesport is located less than a mile from the mouth of the River Tees. It’s a deep-water facility with a natural marine opening, providing lock-free access to the North Sea.
Ports have, throughout history, been a place where goods and people arrive or leave the country by sea. The UK port industry, by virtue of our long coastline and maritime history, is the largest in Europe, handling over 500 million tonnes of freight in 2010.
