Energy, Enterprise and Environment Course for Teachers

We are asking Sustainable Scotland Network members and others to highlight a new Energy, Enterprise and Environment (E3) professional learning course to their education colleagues and teachers.

Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Eco-Schools Scotland programme has collaborated with partners EDF Energy to offer educators the opportunity to take part in an Energy, Enterprise and Environment (E3) professional learning course

The programme complements and supports Learning for Sustainability requirements while linking to STEM, enterprise, resilience and social innovation enquiries. It covers climate change and its implications, how energy is produced, and how to reduce carbon emissions and minimise waste. It also looks at how we can support low carbon behaviour change and renewable energy in Scotland.

This is the second time the 18-month long course has been run. The course is free of charge and provides a framework for participants to create, inspire and change, and contributes towards GTCS Standards for Career Long Professional Learning. 

Participants will receive expert input as well as inspiring visits to energy production facilities and access to learning and teaching materials. The course will take place via online learning, residentials and twilights, ensuring teaching cover is not required.  The course runs from January 2017-March 2018, and there are 24 places available.

You can find out more about the programme and hear from others who have taken part on our website.  Teachers and educators who are interested can register their interest with Michelle Adamson, Education Development Officer in the Eco-Schools Scotland team at Keep Scotland Beautiful.
