Climate Literacy Programme

Delivered in-school through a team-teaching teacher training lens, with 8-week modular structure that fits the transition year programme.

On completion of the module the teacher will have the knowledge and course content to deliver the programme.

About the Programme

8 week module delivered in a double class once a week.

After the training, teachers will be able to deliver the course independently with another group of students. Classes are informative, fun and engaging with the objective of joining the dots for the students between what they do and consume in their daily lives to the problems and solutions incurred with the
environmental crisis.

It covers 8 different environmental topics with an action project in the last week.

It is typically run with transition year students, but it can also be run in CSPE and ad hoc across the curriculum. This course can be run for many years to come, as it is updated annually and there will also be additional topics added to the syllabus.

It includes teacher training, equipping them with the knowledge, attitudes and skills required to effectively and confidently deliver the course.
