Over the past year the North of Tyne has worked with Harwood Education in partnership with UN CC:Learn (The One United Nations Climate Change Learning Partnership) to bring world-class environmental education to every school in the North of Tyne.
Each state-funded school in the combined authority area was given the opportunity to receive fully funded CPD to train at least one member of staff as a UN-accredited climate change teacher.
The last Climate Change Teachers event was held on 2nd March at the Grand Hotel in Gosforth Park – since then the programme has been temporarily suspended while we work with our constituent Local Authorities to respond to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
Please note that although the programme is temporarily suspended, all teachers currently enrolled will receive full accreditation.
Future generations are the ones who will suffer most. This is making sure that everybody is getting that world-class environmental education.
Climate change teacher training will now be available to all state-funded schools as part of our wider North of Tyne Education Improvement Challenge/Joint School Improvement Strategy.
We aim to have climate change teacher training opportunities in place for September 2020.
