John Muir Award in East Ayrshire

East Ayrshire and the John Muir Trust went into a partnership in April 2017. This partnership was formed to embed the John Muir Award in schools throughout the authority. The John Muir Award gives pupils, staff and parents the opportunity to Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share school grounds and local greenspace areas.

Secondary Schools and the John Muir Award

Support package for Secondary Schools (BGE)

The John Muir Trust is providing additional support for secondary practitioners, particularly within the Broad General Education who are looking to use the John Muir Award as part of a recovery curriculum.

The Trust is running drop- in sessions through Glow to introduce the package of support that is available including: a planning tool for meeting the Award challenges across curriculum subject areas and a suite of ready to go lesson ideas that you can make use of in school or as remote learning tasks (see attached).  These lesson ideas are also collated here in a visual format using Sway in this padlet.

The sessions will be an opportunity to answer any questions that you have around delivering a John Muir Award with your learners.

Dates: Wednesdays 4.00-4.45pm 8, 15, 22 and 29 of September and 6 October (attendance at one session will be enough to get you started).  Book your place through e-Sgoile here (you will need Glow login).
