We’re looking forward to the new school year here in the Green-Schools Office! Each year our local authority partners organise seminars to introduce teachers to the new themes they’ll be working on this academic year. The seminars will be delivered by Green-Schools staff and will talk you through all aspects of the new themes and answer any questions you might have. They’re a great way to meet fellow teachers and exchange ideas! As seminars are scheduled we’ll add them to the list below.

If you wish to attend a seminar please contact us or your local council’s Environment Awareness Officer, who may be hosting the event.
