Operam Education Group helps 400 lucky teenagers experience an incredible underwater adventure in Cornwall.
Here at Operam Education Group we believe it is every young person’s right to experience the ocean and that educating our children about the wonders of the planet’s marine environment and the crucial part it plays in our existence will help safeguard our seas for future generations.
Operam Education Group is working with Supply Clouds and Dive Project Cornwall on the launch of an ambitious project to educate hundreds of thousands of young people by delivering an education programme directly into schools across the UK, in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society
At the heart of the project is a nationwide competition open to all secondary schools for 400 lucky teenagers to win the experience of a lifetime; a 6-day, life-changing trip to Cornwall where they will learn to scuba dive, enjoy outdoor adventures, take up beach-related activities and attend presentations from leading marine industry experts.
This truly immersive experience will take the teens from classroom to shoreline and beyond, from an on-site training pool to taking their first steps in discovering the wonders of life underwater in the ocean, igniting their imaginations and delivering an experience that they can treasure for the rest of their lives.
Many of these children will never have had the opportunity to experience the ocean close at hand, but following the residential course, delivered in the breath-taking environment of the Lizard in Cornwall, they will leave as PADI qualified open water divers, armed with a new understanding of curiosity, accountability and self-confidence.
Eddie Austin, Operam’s founder and CEO commented “ it such a great honour to be able to support an amazing and sustainable programme that offers young adults the opportunity to understand more about their physical environment whilst increasing their own levels of resilience and confidence, and one that develops social mobility’
