The new sustainability leads will be charged with developing schools’ climate action plans – which will also need to be in place by 2025 and which will “drive activity to improve climate education”.
The leads will also oversee measures to protect schools against the effects of climate change and increase “climate resilience”.
The carbon literacy training will “build knowledge of climate change” as well as offer information about how to access public funds and how to use the planned National Education Nature Park (see below).
The training will also help sustainability leads to “understand emissions reporting and how to develop a climate action plan so that they can share learning and training within their own setting as appropriate”.
