Benefit for SET members: education for sustainable development programme now open

Booking is now open for the ‘Embedding education for sustainable development (ESD)’ course, offered as a benefit for members of the Society for Education and Training (SET), and delivered by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) alongside EAUC, the sustainability champion for post-16 education in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Starting on 8 May 2024, this course of six fortnightly sessions is for teachers, trainers, and tutors across the Further Education (FE) and skills sector seeking to embed sustainability into their professional practice. SET members receive priority booking, before places are offered to the wider sector.

This latest offer follows the success of two previous ESD programmes, initially developed by ETF with subsequent iterations delivered alongside EAUC. ETF worked with ESD experts across the country to develop the initial content for the series – first delivered in 2022 – including practitioners, members of the COP26 Education and Skills Committee, and specialist sector bodies. The course directly aligns with the second of ETF’s Professional Standards for the sector to “promote and embed education for sustainable development across learning and working practices”. 

Places on this popular course are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis. The total cost of the six sessions for SET members is £170. The cost for non-members is £230.
