Carbon Literacy Course (for Teachers)

Designed for teachers and staff that are tasked with leading on climate change and sustainability, this course provides all the knowledge and tools you need to kickstart a climate revolution.

What makes us unique?

Interactive learning

Engaging your students is key to their learning and success. This course uses games to teach you Carbon Literacy, meaning it is interactive, engaging and most importantly fun- the opposite of death by PowerPoint. Our interactive learning method ensures you feel confident and capable of teaching Carbon Literacy and make a real impact on your students’ understanding.

The interactivity, atmosphere and fast pace but without it being overwhelming. Not sure if this was planned but the course was neurodivergent friendly which is rarely the case so thank you as I was dreading it a bit!’

Scientific credibility

We take our course content seriously and base it on the scientific data from the book ‘How Bad Are Bananas?’ by Mike Berners-Lee, the most up-to-date compendium of carbon footprint research in the UK.

Definitely going to get the book! Really opened my eyes to what has a high CO2′.

Lasting learning

We use a unique approach that encourages you to share your knowledge and experiences with fellow learners, resulting in a deeper understanding of the course material. You’ll leave our course with a solid grasp of the concepts and the ability to remember and apply them long after the course has ended.

‘The focus on empowerment and teaching techniques. It is not about memorising content but feeling equipped and skilled to guide learners/ engagers’

Meet other teachers

You will get to engage with teachers from across the sectors. You will all have carbon literacy education in common but will offer varying views and perspectives which will enhance your learning experience.

‘[My favourite part of the course was] Breakout groups and having conversations with people actually delivering this in schools and sharing of information to apply with students’
