As well as one to one support, schools are able to engage through 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. Learning outside of the classroom (LOTC) has been identified as ‘memorable activities leading to memorable learning and positively contributing to pupil safety’. LOTC provides positive benefits to all groups of young people and supports a rich, relevant, broad and balanced curriculum.
