Connecting Classrooms opportunity for teachers

Connecting Classrooms is offering a new professional learning opportunity for primary and secondary teachers in Scotland to develop their practice in relation to Learning for Sustainability.

This professional learning initiative by the University of Edinburgh and Learning for Sustainability Scotland in partnership with the British Council is an opportunity for teachers to explore what LfS means, what existing and new core skills, values and knowledge are required, and how this might all look in your school context. The professional learning is fully funded.

Learning for Sustainability is about building the values, core skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to develop practices and take decisions for a sustainable future. It is also a core approach to delivering Curriculum for Excellence.

This programme offers teachers the opportunity to engage and collaborate over a ten week period, including a day-long participative face-to-face session at the beginning and at the end of the period, supported by fortnightly inputs from online materials and support from facilitators.

Scotland is unique internationally in having a requirement for all teachers and education professionals to address Learning for Sustainability (LfS) in their practice to conform to the to the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) Professional Standards.

Classes will take place in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Oban and you can find out more on the LfS Scotland Connecting Classrooms page.
