Volunteer with us

What our volunteers do

Our volunteers visit schools to carry out Eco-Schools Green Flag assessments.

As a Volunteer Eco-Schools Assessor you will visit schools in your area to help us assess whether a school has met the criteria required to achieve the Eco-Schools Green Flag.

An assessment visit will usually last between one and two hours and you will be fully trained beforehand.

There are many benefits associated with being an Eco-Schools Volunteer Assessor

  • Meet others interested in the Eco-Schools programme
  • Gain inspiration from real-life examples of environmental action and learning
  • Develop skills in communication, observation and assessment
