Here’s the blurb for both green skills events:
Did you know there is a Skills Bill? Members of our community have been working to get ‘green’ skills included and better understood. They are also mentioned in the DfE draft Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy which we examined in our event earlier this year. In two sessions we will explore what we mean by ‘green skills’, beyond installing renewables. How can they be developed from early years onwards, and become a lifelong learning process?
What do we mean by pro-environmental or social behaviours? What leads to resilience? How do competencies fit with this and how can we tell if we are building skills and capabilities to engage in a sustainable future?
We will look at:
- pro-social behaviours in early years
- how to make the curriculum at KS2 lead to empowerment, resilience and ‘action’ learning
- what are eco-capabilities and how do we build them?
- what a teacher sustainability competencies?
- What is the research on the role of the outdoors in building skills and resilience?
- What is the role of creativity in ‘green’ skills?
- What is the focus in the SDGs
