This September the Eco-Schools team launched our first ever series of online training sessions linked to the Seven Steps and the ten Eco-Schools topics… and we were overwhelmed with your encouraging feedback and the number of signups. Not only that, our new online training has also proven to be a great way to catch up with all our Eco-Coordinators and share ideas and best practice from across the country. A real positive eco-boost that we all needed over the past few months, thank you.
We are therefore extremely pleased to tell you that (back by popular demand) we are launching a whole new series on Eco-Schools online training sessions for 2021. 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.
These training sessions are designed to support Eco-Coordinators through each stage of the Eco-Schools Seven Step process providing: examples of best practice from schools across the country; a breakdown and analysis of the Eco-Schools criteria; and tasks to help your school community get the maximum benefit from the Eco-Schools programme. Each training session begins with an introductory Zoom call and ends with a live, Zoom Q&A session. Participants will also be asked to submit evidence, relating to each training session, which the Eco-Schools team will check and provide feedback on, helping Eco-Committees achieve Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation. If you are new to the Eco-Schools programme we recommend beginning with our achieving Bronze Award session (also part of the Green Flag Training Bundle), which provides guidance on beginning your Eco-Schools journey.
