Channel Tunnel Curriculum Development (5-19) Project
April 1987 – August 1995
Initially as a secondment to Kent County Council Education, and then managed by Kent Curriculum Services Agency, I was based at the Eurotunnel Exhibition Centre, Folkestone. Read more >
The booklet opposite is representative of the twenty-three learning resources published by this collaboration and is still available as shown. During the construction period the Exhibition Centre had an education room for workshops and the Centre was visited by thousands of students of all ages.
At the end of this period I spent an interesting term shadowing a School Development Consultant and trained for headteacher appraisal.

Suitable for GCSE and GNVQ level students, the approach involves problem-solving and decision making in the fields of the company mission, costs and benefits, the people concerned in running the business and making it pay.
