We offer a range of professional learning opportunities to support our sustainable development education initiatives. See below for more details or email SDE@keepscotlandbeautiful.org.
Climate Ready Classrooms
The Climate Ready Classrooms project prepares young people to join a national network of carbon literate ambassadors who plan and act on climate change issues within their own schools and communities. It is a one-day accredited carbon literacy training course for secondary schools which has been designed for young people aged 14–17 years, along with their teachers, head teachers, CLD practitioners and youth and children’s workers.
Young Food Entrepreneurs
Young Food Entrepreneurs is our schools based project supporting young people aged 11-15 years to explore food, sustainability and enterprise and build teacher confidence in the concept of sustainable development and Learning for Sustainability processes.
Building Scotland as a Good Food Nation requires young people to contribute to increasing the supply of locally grown, processed and supplied food which is nutritious, affordable and easy to access.
We are now recruiting schools for a third presentation of the project in the academic year 2018 - 2019.
Food and the Environment
Our professional learning course on Food & the Environment aims to improve your confidence in using sustainable food as a context for learning across the curriculum, particularly through practical action, outdoor learning, and Learning for Sustainability. It aims to inspire your enthusiasm and curiosity to explore and reconnect with what you eat. As teachers, head teachers and other educators work to secure every learner's entitlement to Learning for Sustainability, this Food and the Environment professional learning programme provides the opportunity to develop professional knowledge, confidence and skills in relation to the social justice and sustainability aspects of the GTCS and other Standards. The current presentation of this course is for Early Years educators but it is available for other levels as well.
