Trainee Teacher Programme
In a poll conducted by YouGov on behalf of Oxfam in 2018, more than two-thirds of teachers polled said there should be more teaching in UK schools about climate change, while three-quarters did not feel they had received adequate training to educate students on the subject. Around 70% agreed radical change was needed to make the education system “fit for the times we live in”.
Teach Earth, trainee teacher programme seeks to address this challenge by building a learning programme that both compliments and enhances the initial teacher training experience. By providing learning on key environmental challenges, outdoor learning and connection to nature, we aim to create a cohort of educators who are empowerd, inspired and prepared to engage the next generation in positive action for the planet both now and in years to come.
