When we started to work with schools

Doc Academy have also developed with teachers free curriculum-linked lesson plans for English Language KS3 & KS4 using 10 film clips from the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning documentary Exodus: Our Journey to Europe.

Follow English teacher Hassan, from Syria, as he leaves his war-torn country and attempts to travel to the UK. His story enables students to practice a range of reading, writing and listening skills while developing their understanding of forced migration.
