Carbon Literacy Train-the-Trainer Programme
Develop essential trainer skills, get paid to deliver Carbon Literacy training, make an impact on the biggest challenge of our time.
Are you passionate about climate action? Do you want to educate others about climate change and what they can do about it? Do you want to develop essential trainer and communication skills? Then join Manchester Met’s Team of Carbon Literacy trainers! Manchester Met is currently working towards the ambitious target of embedding Carbon Literacy in all degree programmes by 2026. Over the past year we have trained academics as trainers, but we are now looking to recruit students for this role too. As a Carbon Literacy trainer, you will primarily deliver Carbon Literacy training within your department. However, there will also be opportunities to deliver paid Carbon Literacy training to other students, members of staff and our wider community. You do not need to be a climate change expert to enrol on this programme; you just need to hold a Carbon Literacy certificate, and be passionate about sustainability/climate change issues. Requirements to Enrol on the Train-the-Trainer Programme
- You need to hold a Carbon Literacy certificate or have attended Carbon Literacy training over the past year (though your certificate may not have been issued yet). If you have not attended Carbon Literacy training, opportunities are available on 31st May and 1st June.
- You need to have attended a Carbon Literacy Facilitator Workshop. If you have not attended this yet, please sign up to the Facilitator Workshop on 2nd June.
- You need to commit to working with your department’s Carbon Literacy Champion(s) on the delivery of Carbon Literacy training in academic year 2023-24. This will involve delivery of a minimum of 2 sessions.
