Education Volunteers

At the Shipwreck Centre & Maritime Museum at Arreton Barns, we offer a number of education sessions to schools. It would be fantastic to find volunteers who are happy to help us run these sessions.

We also offer sessions for children throughout the holidays and weekends and again there is an opportunity to assist.

The sessions we offer includes The History of Diving, WW1 and WW2 and preshistory focusing on Bouldnor Cliff.

We don't expect you to be a Maritime Archaeologist or historian, our Education & Outreach Officer will be on hand to lead the session however having additional support is invaluable in making these fun for all.


We obviously need you to be happy to interact with children! We also need you to feel confident with talking to teachers and to follow the policies that we have in place to keep everyone who visits and works at the Shipwreck Centre & Maritime Museum safe.

You must also be happy to take guidance and able to follow instruction from our Education & Outreach Officer on the delivery of the session.
