Resources for teachers
Gasworks played a central part in our lives for over two centuries. Whether it was giving us the power to heat our homes, employing thousands of people or giving our skylines a distinctive feature.
As one of the custodians of this industrial heritage, we want to capture and share this fascinating history with younger generations. Using our extensive knowledge and working with education experts, we’ve created a suite of fun and engaging learning materials to offer pupils a unique insight into our industry and everyone’s past.
Our learning materials are free to download, or use online, and provide teachers with easy to use content, covering our scientific heritage and our ever-changing social history.
Our resources cover a range of topics
Our resources for teachers are designed to support history learning and the development of children’s enquiry and critical thinking skills. They are supplied as interactive PDF’s and are free to download or use online.
