The Core Module assists to evaluate where each school is and where it wants to get to, and how it will get there.
The Core Module sets the groundwork for each school's sustainability journey.
The Core Module assists to evaluate where each school is and where it wants to get to, and how it will get there. It involves three key areas:
Create a snapshot of how the school is approaching sustainability by gathering baseline data, reviewing curriculum, infrastructure and daily operations and recognising prior achievements and opportunities for improvement. Use this data to plan how to embed sustainability principles throughout the school and to set up a framework to track the school’s progress and achievements.
Create a plan to build sustainability into teaching and learning to embed sustainability into the curriculum.
The Core Module has 17 actions. To complete the module, all 17 actions must be completed. To see the full list of actions, download the Core Module checklist.
