The team at Blade Education highly values lived experience as a central part of any successful project. We believe that the answers to many issues begin with valuing what members of any community can tell us about what they need for a successful outcome.
Wherever possible, we hold lessons, sessions, and events outside. All ages and all kinds of people get involved in Blade Education projects. People have volunteered for us from the age of 8 to 103.
From HMS Leigh, a community led heritage and arts project that connected people of all ages with the history of Southend Pier, also known as HMS Leigh, during WW2. Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Arts Council and Southend Borough Council, this project was created as part of the VE 75 celebrations in 2020 and survived to be one of the first post pandemic lockdown in person events in September 2021. Our latest project, Southend Safer Care Leavers has developed a free online information service for young people supporting the knowledge already given and ensuring they are ready to take charge of their own health care.
Thanks to all our supporters and volunteers from a wide range of organisations and funders, Blade Education for nearly two decades has been able to offer wonderful learning experiences to thousands of children, families, and the general public. If you want to know more, please do get in touch. We would love to hear from you!
We offer bespoke services, innovative artistic and educational projects, media production and expert consultancy. We can build a fully operational service or project from an initial concept or a one-off film to compliment your existing web presence... or anything in between. Our production staff are BBC trained and our project staff are all experts in their field with over 40 years’ experience in all types of media production.
Blade Education is built upon offering value for money heritage, education, art and community projects, learning support and media production to all. We don't take profits from Blade Education or our projects and we are proud to say that all monies go back into the company to make a difference in the lives of people around the UK.
Whether you have an idea for a project or need a film for your organisation we would be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.
If you are interested in volunteering for us please do get in touch with our Creative Director, Beth Hooper by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
