Learning for Sustainability and STEM

With Scotland hosting the COP26 Climate conference, held in Glasgow this year there is a renewed momentum behind Learning for Sustainability (LfS) as part of our CfE curriculum.

With this in mind we have been working hard to support our practitioners with this.  Below is a summary of the offers we have for practitioners to engage in.

For all updates on LfS in Falkirk please see the LfS blog.

  • We have a LfS resources page on our blog here which also contains a self directed learning CLPL on climate change for those practitioners who would like to brush up on the terminology and concepts.
  • We have new STEM through Stories planners for LfS. These are for Early, First and Second Level.
  • We have been lucky in Falkirk to secure the training and resources to be able to run 12 Pondering Pondlife microorganisms workshops with schools. The training and equipment for this has been provided by EBSOC.  For more detail on this please see our June newsletter here.  To sign up please email gw14hanningbarbara@glow.sch.uk
  • We have put together several videos on our blog to outline possible projects or resources you could engage with to cover LfS and STEM.  These are linked to the 5 Falkirk LfS bundles. Exploring Sustainable Practices, Global Citizenship, Culture and Heritage, Exploring Values and Attitudes and Exercising Postive Activism.  We are hosting live Q and A sessions for these over the coming weeks.  Sign up on CPD manager using the links below.
