The SKIPS Sustainable Schools Programme addresses the importance of teacher training and professional development. Our accredited training session modules create greater subject matter awareness for teachers and how to tackle them onto the curriculum.
Each module equips teachers with:
- the skills, knowledge and resources to deliver effective engaging lessons back in the classroom.
- lesson plans, rationales and delivery options saving on hours of preparation time
- parental engagement books that act as the toolkit to take the key messages taught in the classroom back into the homes to help create behaviour change
- the confidence to run well-structured parental workshops
