This academic year Eco-Schools is delighted to announce its first online training sessions, whether you’re new to the Eco-Schools programme or have already achieved an Eco-Schools Green Flag we have a variety of courses to inform, inspire, guide and support you on your journey to Eco-Schools Green Flag.

Each training session will run over several weeks beginning with an introductory Zoom call. During this call, small manageable tasks will be set to be completed throughout the duration of the course at times that fit into your busy school schedule. Each task will enable you to meet the criteria for one of the Eco-Schools Seven Steps, helping your school on its journey to Eco-Schools Green Flag. In the final week of each training session, the Eco-Schools team will be hosting a second live zoom call for all course participants to raise questions and share best practice.
