Choose from five separate astronomy courses, suitable for complete beginner right through to first-year university standard, including GCSE Astronomy.
If the environment is more your interest then there is a Planet Earth certificate course in Environment Science which you might like to try.
A Planet Earth certificate is issued for each completed course.
You will find a complete syllabus for each of the courses available, along with other details about each course, and the necessary enrolment information on our website.
There is a ‘Student Feedback’ link where you can view some of the unsolicited comments we have received from past students.
We pride ourselves on being accessible and flexible and offer very attractively priced services, of the highest standards, and we work hard to provide you with what you want.
Of paramount importance to us is the one-to-one contact students have with their tutor, who is easily accessible even outside of office hours.
Planet Earth Education’s popularity has been growing over many years with various home educators who have used our courses in the education of their own children, many obtaining the GCSE Astronomy qualification, a recognised science qualification.
Planet Earth Education also offers, in association with Mobile Stars Planetarium, educational visits to schools and scouting groups.
Working throughout the North of England for over ten years, visitors into the planetarium have a very immersive and exciting educational visit.
The shows are interactive and there is ample opportunity for question and answer sessions.
We offer a range of live presentations in astronomy for groups of all ages.
Planetarium shows run for up to one hour and presentations can be adapted to suit your needs.
For cubs and brownies most of the requirements for the astronomy badge or stargazers badge are covered in just the one evening visit.
