Resources for Education
Resources for Sustainability Education is a range of classroom materials available for loan FREE to all schools within Hertfordshire.
The story so far
A group including a representatives from the Wheathampstead Development Centre, Hertfordshire Outdoors and the Geography Curriculum Advisor for Hertfordshire and officers from HEF was established. Various options were discussed by the group including producing a HEF Sustainability teacher's pack with work sheets and supporting information. The decision to form the RSE, as it is now, came about with the recognition that there are already many resources for teachers in the UK covering sustainability and sustainability topics, which are updated regularly in line with the changes in the national curriculum. It was therefore decided that the best idea would be to buy in a range of materials from books to teacher's packs.
To provide Hertfordshire schools with access to educational resources on sustainability via the Wheathampstead Development Centre (WDC).
To help individual Hertfordshire councils who are increasingly being approached to help support schools on sustainability issues.
To provide a co-ordinated and cost effective approach to cover all of Hertfordshire schools, which is best offered through HEF.
Groups who will benefit:
School children key stage 2 (7-11 years old) and 3 (11-14 years old), their teachers, and schools.
Additional information and resources have been sought from HEF partner organisations such as the Environment Agency, and Three Valleys Water. The resources are backed up by local information supplied by each of the District Councils. This information includes contact details for each of the relevant departments in the district/borough councils to aid teachers in accessing their local councils. Any additional local sustainability information is at the Districts discretion.
