Life before Education Through Expeditions, an explorers story...
There is no set career path to becoming an explorer. No degree or apprenticeship. Exploration is a realisation of a dream. After five years in the armed forces, Antony Jinman left to pursue this dream. He became an adventure tour guide at 23 and then an expedition leader at the age of 25, travelling extensively all over the world.
His first trip to the Arctic was the 2007, Baffin Island Expedition for the Mitchem Trust, raising over £200,000 for vulnerable children. This was the start of a special relationship as Baffin Island has become the hub for Antony’s Arctic expeditions, which have taken him to Greenland and the ultimate challenge, the geographic North Pole in 2010.
Realising his boyhood dream to reach the pole at the age of 29 might seem like the end of his ambition but this is very much not the case; it is as an educator, rather than an explorer, that Antony wants to be known for.
Forming Education Through Expeditions, developing the dream...
For the past three years Antony has been developing his school outreach program, visiting schools and communicating his passion for expedition to children, hoping to inspire them as he was by his hero Captain Scott.
This work flourished in January 2010, to become Education Through Expeditions (ETE), a not-for-profit, community interest company. ETE was formed with the purpose of connecting explorers and schools, inspiring children and adults alike and educating them about their environment and the world around them.
The team, and related community, will achieve this through interactive expeditions and school outreach work. Our interactive curriculum focused learning resources are developed from real life case studies, compiled from expedition materials gathered by fieldworkers, scientists and explorers across the globe.
