Virtual Fisheries Forum | Reel Education: The Journey So Far!
Encouraging the younger generation to join our sport can be a difficult challenge as many angling club & fishery organisations will be aware, however, the Angling Trust are naturally at the forefront of finding innovative ways to engage young people with fishing.
In this next Virtual Fisheries Forum, we will discuss a novel initiative which has been successfully rolled out across England bringing exciting opportunity for young people to experience the combined physical, mental and educational benefits of fishing within a primary school environment delivered through cleverly integrated KS1 & KS2 school curriculum learning objectives.
Reel Education has been made possible with support from project partners Shakespeare and during this forum session we are joined by the scheme’s School Engagement Initiators for England Chris Holden (North England) and Neil Wylie (South England) for an update on the Reel Education journey so far and details of how YOU can help the Angling Trust progress the scheme going forward.
This session is free to attend and open to all anglers, coaches, club officials, fishery owners, or anyone else interested in angling participation development.
We strongly encourage you to forward a link to this page or notify any fishing friends/colleagues who may be able to help progress or utilise the services to our sport offered by the Reel Education initiative!
