Carbon Literacy resources
This page contains all of the resources you will need to carry out Carbon Literacy Awareness training in schools. The course is accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project and students can be accredited if you wish to self fund at a cost of £10 per person.
A timetable for delivery has been put together which shows 5.5 hours of face to face delivery. There is an expectation that the class teacher will follow up with the carbon classroom activity, which is around 2 hours, plus prior work (carbon footprint calculation) which is 30 minutes. The course has been written by qualified teachers which reflects the relevant knowledge which students will be able to understand. By completing this course and going through the formal accreditation process, students will become Carbon Literate. If you are not intending to go through the accreditation process, please use the carbon awareness resources.
