The eduCCate Global Silver Award

Our Certified Carbon Literacy Teachers  and staff now have the knowledge, skills, understanding and confidence to engage and empower our pupils. We’re building a climate change and sustainability curriculum across our school and we have begun working with other schools to ensure that climate literacy is no longer an ‘optional extra’ but an essential part of every school’s work.

SILVER AWARD

This is where the magic really starts to happen!

The eduCCate Global Silver Award Climate Change Teacher training is only for primary and secondary schools that have completed the Bronze Award.  It is the next step on the bold journey to confidently deliver and develop climate mitigation, adaptation, transition, and transformation knowledge and skills throughout the school.

Your school will:

  • Accelerate carbon literacy learning across the school community
  • Begin to embed climate education in the ethos of the school and incorporate climate and carbon literacy throughout the curriculum
  • Enhance your basic knowledge of climate change and climate action from mitigation to adaptation

      eduCCate Global’s teacher training builds capacity & confidence
       

      • Spend the next 6-months building up your climate and carbon literacy one step at a time.

      • Complete The Carbon Literacy Teacher Training and project that we’ve adapted for Climate Change Teachers and train all staff.  The training and project are certified by the Carbon Literacy Project in partnership with eduCCate Global.

      • Work together to remap the school curriculum to include at least 30 hours climate and carbon literacy across the curriculum.

      • Introduce students to two new schemes of work.

      • Continue to have access to the teacher-adapted UN trainings and the scheme of work you chose in the Bronze Award. They will be found on the LMS in your Bronze Award folder.

      • We recommend that teachers continue to enhance their continuous professional development [CPD] by taking our teacher-adapted UN training, that they have not had the chance to do in the Bronze Award and share and learn more broadly across the school

      Our simple 7-step process is each school’s success pathway

        1. Activate the Silver Award Sustainability & Climate Literacy Leadership Team
        2. Successfully complete the eduCCate Global teacher-adapted UN teacher training that your team members have not done in the Bronze Award
        3. Complete the eduCCate Carbon Literacy Teacher Training and project to receive the Carbon Literacy certification
        4. Remap the school curriculum to include up to 30 hours climate and carbon literacy across the curriculum 
        5. Build on student engagement and action. Have fun and generate impact!
        6. Get your eduCCate Global Silver Award certificates and badges
        7. Gain recognition for your school and teachers

        Carbon Literacy Teacher Training

        Created by the Carbon Literacy Project and adapted for teachers by eduCCate Global, the training experience is grounded in science, experiential, and provides a basis for meaningful conversations with students about concrete actions we can take globally, nationally, locally and personally. To achieve certification, the Sustainability and Climate Literacy Leadership Team will complete a project proposal based on the needs and priorities of their school community that is assessed by the Carbon Literacy Project.

        EnRoads Climate Workshop

        eduCCate Global recommends the Sustainability and Climate Literacy Leadership Team take the EnRoads Climate Workshop as an extra after doing the one hour introduction as part of the Carbon Literacy Teacher Training.  “The resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening and will give teachers confidence when working with the climate change simulation.”

        Silver Award Schools also retain access to the teacher-adapted UN courses, Identifying & Countering Misinformation about Climate Science, Climate Change Games for Critical Thinking and other content from the eduCCate Global Bronze Award. 

        In the Silver, every teacher in the school participates in one prescribed eduCCate Global teacher-adapted UN training course.

        eduCCate Global Silver Award Schemes of Work

        Silver Award Schools still have access to the schemes of work they chose in the Bronze Award. In addition, schools can choose one of three new schemes of work

        The Carbon Footprint Buster Challenge* [ages 3 to 17],
        a scheme of work with Lisa Pugh, Teacher and Founder of The Deer Wood Trust; or

        The Carbon Footprint Buster Challenge (3 - 17)

        Schools that choose this scheme of work must complete two challenges and can choose up to 12.

        Transition Engineering Stories* [ages 3-11 and ages 12 - 15],
        schemes of work with Professor Susan Krumdieck, Chair in Sustainable Energy Transition Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Scotland.

        Transition Engineering Stories (3 to 11 years)

        This 10 week STEM scheme of work, presented by an age-appropriate peer, brings the basic concepts of transition engineering to life through stories in a fun and engaging way.

        Transition Engineering Stories (12 to 15 Years)
