All children, from birth to 5 years old, must develop an understanding of the world and natural environment as part of their early learning goals (ELGs) under the Early years foundation stage statutory framework (EYFS). This is reinforced by the government’s flagship Sustainability and climate change strategy.
In this course, Hannah Tombling will provide you with the knowledge and skills to understand your role as a climate education lead in an early years setting and develop excellence in leadership to support high-quality teaching and learning in line with EYFS expectations.
Please note: The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives of the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
