Leicester City Council has a dedicated Environmental Education Coordinator based in the Environment Team who works with schools to help them become more sustainable in all that they do. We encourage schools to follow the Eco-Schools Programme.
As well as one to one support, schools are able to engage through half-termly #EcoTeachmeets, staff training, resource planning & workshops, an annual Eco-Schools conference & celebration event and keep up to date through a dedicated Twitter account, monthly eBulletins and termly newsletters. The Eco-Schools programme provides exciting opportunities for students in curriculum time as well as outside the classroom.There are 9 areas that are covered in the Eco-Schools framework
There are three levels of Eco-schools awards plus the Eco-schools ambassador role:
