*NEW* Online Course Outline:

The Climate Action Team from the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce, in conjunction with Green-Schools and the Climate Ambassador programme, have developed this short course specifically for primary school teachers in Ireland. We hope you have a wonderful time engaging with the course material, find it practical and enjoy the learning experience.

The course is delivered as an online learning experience whereby the course is carried out remotely in your own time (4 hours x 5 modules). Upon successful completion, you will be issued with a certificate of professional development which entitles you to 3 EPV days.

Our main aim is to empower primary teachers to confidently explore climate change as part of the curriculum and encourage climate action in your school communities.
