Education settings travel bursary: Wales Coast Path

Closed 17 Jun 2022

Opened 25 May 2022

Overview

 

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Wales Coast Path, Natural Resources Wales is offering a number of travel bursaries to enable education settings in Wales to visit a section of the Coast Path.

The 870 mile long-distance walking trail runs from the Welsh border near Chester, to Chepstow in South East Wales. The Path offers unique and stimulating learning and experience opportunities for all ages and abilities to support delivery of both formal and informal curricula. 

Why your views matter

Imagine how a trip to the Coast Path could bring learning alive!

Could your learners help to promote the Path by designing a promotional leaflet or writing a newsletter?  How long would it take your learners to walk the entire Wales Coast Path?  From smuggling to food chains, coastal art to learning about the habitats and landforms along the Welsh coast, visit the Path to discover the cross-curricular learning opportunities and the sense of 'Cynefin' the Wales Coast Path offers in waves.

All of our resources to support your visit can be found here: Wales Coast Path

 

Applications can be made for up to £200 towards the cost of transporting your learners to and from the Wales Coast Path.
