For all courses, current knowledge of climate change does not matter, as all learners are taken to a common level.

Carbon Literacy for Local Authorities

Tailored specifically to UK local government, (County, Borough, Town & Parish Councils), LA toolkits provide a basic understanding of climate science and local impacts of a warming world.

Facilitated activities focus on the co-benefits of climate action and how local authorities are well placed in their community to effect change directly and indirectly through various levers of influence.

Ask about versions for elected members, leaders and staff.

Carbon Literacy for Education, Universities and Colleges

Equip our next generation of workforce and leaders with knowledge about climate impacts and the tools to influence change, bridging a much needed gap in the curriculum to date.

As with all courses, some of the content is customisable, and we continue to work with some of the further educational establishments across the country, for whom we have delivered this toolkit.

We’re currently working on designing courses for primary and secondary schools. Contact us for more information:

Carbon Literacy for Interested Organisations (CLIO)

This broad Carbon Literacy course is useful as a taster for larger organisations who wish to experience Carbon Literacy training, before rolling out an internal programme with Speak Carbon.

It is also suited for SMEs, micro businesses and community groups who may not be large enough to book an in-house course. See also Carbon Literacy for SMEs.

Look for available dates in Upcoming Courses.

Carbon Literacy for Healthcare

Remarkably, healthcare accounts for a 4% of the world’s emissions. With an inextricable link between human health and climate change, this course highlights how ensuring planetary health benefits patients, lowering demand for services.

Prepare staff for implementing carbon conscious decisions and develop confidence discussing climate with colleagues and patients.

Ask about Generic and Leadership versions of the course, which are also suited to suppliers of healthcare services.

Training Professionals

This is our Train-the-Trainer course designed specifically for delivering Carbon Literacy at Scale and Pace.

As well as learning (or refreshing) essential trainer and facilitation skills, participants will be guided through the Carbon Literacy process, from course concept, through the CL standard and values, to certifications. All from the perspective of delivering the training.

These sessions are highly interactive, with opportunity for everyone to present and provide feedback. Successful completion of all elements results in Carbon Literacy Trainer accreditation.

All course materials can be integrated into our Professional Trainer programme. Once individually accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project, as qualified internal trainers you will be confident in rolling out Carbon Literacy across your organisation at scale and pace.
