A great opportunity for those passionate about combatting climate change…
If you are passionate about combatting climate change, knowledgeable about climate science and solutions, or have experience of delivering or developing training, this Climate and Carbon Literacy Trainer opportunity is for you.
We are looking for up to three friendly, articulate and highly motivated trainers to join our existing team to help meet the growing demand for our very popular Climate and Carbon Literacy and related training programmes.
This role will be a freelance contract (employment status will be determined via the HMRC checker), to help us train more than 3,000 people from a wide variety of backgrounds and organisations over the duration of the project (funded until Dec 2025, but with the chance of extension, subject to funding). You will be paid £21.50 an hour, for all the hours you work, including for preparation, course delivery and admin. Our courses range from full-day accredited Carbon Literacy training to half day Climate Fresk sessions to 30-minute introductory sessions.
Being a Climate and Carbon literacy trainer is a great opportunity to do interesting work with an award-winning environmental charity and help inspire and inform people to take action to combat climate change at an individual, organisational and community level.
CLIMATE AND CARBON LITERACY TRAINING
Carbon Literacy training inspires the behaviour change needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It increases knowledge, understanding, confidence and sense of agency by providing people, communities and organisations with the information, training, support, networks and tools they need to make positive changes.
It enables informed decision making. Recipients feel empowered to make changes to their lives at home and at work, share their learning and driving positive environmental changes. Our training sessions are highly interactive, and we offer a variety of set courses; from full day, accredited Climate and Carbon Literacy training to shorter introductory sessions on climate science and solutions for Cumbria. Some are open courses, bookable on the CAfS website, and we also develop bespoke courses for specific audiences. Click to find out more about our courses.
There is strong demand for this kind of training from individuals, community groups, local authorities, schools, businesses, parish councils and others. We have an existing pool of expert trainers in the CAfS team and need to recruit additional contractors to respond to increasing demand.
This is a really exciting opportunity to be part of a transformational shift in knowledge, attitudes and action on the climate crisis in the county.
