National Sustainable Schools Conference

SEEd’s annual conference is held in collaboration with a consortium of local partners in a different regional location each year. Our conference brings together over 100 people of all ages to create a space where they can learn and share from each other. As a delegate, you might find yourself attending a workshop facilitated by primary pupils, listening to a presentation from a local head teacher on how they have taken a Whole School Approach to sustainability, or browsing one of the many stalls in search of resources to take back to your school or workplace. Sound interesting? Get in touch to find out about being part of our 2017 conference..

  • Do you need to take advantage of the curriculum ‘space’ that the National Curriculum  gives you?
  • Do you need to explore and consider how to address Ofsted’s expectations of broad/balanced curriculum
  • Are you looking at ways to make your SMSC work relevant to global  and local concerns of your students?

If so, then SEEd’s National Sustainable Schools Conference is for you!

  • When: Monday 13th November 2017 (9.00am – 4.30pm)
  • Where: Baden Powell House, London

Learning for Sustainability leadership Course

Our 4-day Learning for Sustainability Leadership course runs twice a year or on demand. The courses take place at a site with a strong sustainability focus, enabling participants to apply newly learned techniques to real-world situations. The course covers learning, change, influence, persuasion, and how to broaden and deepen engagement. It is structured as two full days, followed by a 3-month action learning break with online support, and a final two days. 

This is what previous attendees have said about the course: 

“I would urge anyone interested in the learning process, whether your focus is sustainability or not, to come on this course. A mini teacher training course, for beginners or experienced teachers, incredibly refreshing and inclusive. Very transformative!”- Kerri Hicks, Environmental Education and Sustainability Co-ordinator, Eton College, 2015 

Policy forum

SEEd runs an annual policy forum with a focus on issues which we feel most reflect those affecting our members and supporters.

Previous fora have explored topics such as: ‘Education for Sustainable Development in the UK and its role in Sustainable Living’; ‘Evidence for Sustainability in Education’ and ‘Can Schools be Models of Sustainability?’
