The Becoming an Eco School course is an ideal framework to follow, aiming to inspire and motivate your pupils to make a difference. The course will support you in guiding your school on its journey and help to make sustainability an integral part of school life. Your increased knowledge will support your school in enhancing the curriculum and getting the whole school united in changing their behaviour and progressing through the Eco-School Awards.
