We are offering businesses the opportunity to train staff free of charge about the benefits of developing a more sustainable world with a new course.
As we move towards a sustainable curriculum, embedding the issue in all curriculum areas, we are encouraging businesses to take advantage of the free course ‘Do More, Waste Less: An Introduction to a Greener Economy’. Staff can take the free online self-study course to improve their knowledge of what sustainability is, the issues with sustainable development and how we can all contribute to a greener world.
The Introduction to Sustainability course has been created by BLUEPRINT to a Circular Economy partners, Anglia Ruskin University. The course will be tutor-led and will comprise of online class discussions, small group work and independent activities. Learners who complete the course will be able to progress onto a Level 2 accredited qualification, Climate Change and Environmental Awareness, and this course could be fully funded.
We have an ongoing commitment to sustainability and offers a wide range of creative and thrift craft courses, which explore the use of raw and recycled materials, with a focus on recycling, re-purposing and repairing. Sustainability is also a key element of its education, wherever possible environmental issues are discussed or used as a reference point, such as calculating percentages of climate change in maths.
We have also signed up to UNFCC Race to Zero campaign. This global campaign rallies leadership and businesses for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs and unlocks sustainable growth.
BLUEPRINT to a Circular Economy is led by Essex County Council and has a total budget of 5.6m euros, of which 3.8m euros were provided by the European Regional Development Fund via the Interreg France (Channel) England programme.
