This is a level 3 course.

ESP units at Level 3 cover core and foundational aspects of a topic to provide an introduction and overview of a topic. Units are accessible to learners who have studied STEM subjects at this or lower levels, but are also suitable for learners with higher level qualifications in other STEM areas/disciplines seeking an introduction to emerging technologies.

In order to ensure that you are suitable for the course, and to enable the trainer to be made aware of your experience in Introduction to sustainability and life cycle thinking you’ll be sent a short survey to complete once you have registered for this Train the Trainer event.

The Train the Trainer event will equip those attending with the knowledge and skills and materials to deliver the Introduction to sustainability and life cycle thinking directly to their own learners.

The overall length of the unit (including the remote tutor-led element)that this Train the Trainer course will enable you to deliver yourself is 1.5 days with 1 day of remote tutor-led learning and the other days made up of self-directed learning and assessment. However, attendees at Train the Trainer should already have an understanding of the subject matter and therefore the session is about how to deliver the training.

The learning outcomes for this unit include:

  • Describe the trends and drivers for sustainability in the composites industry
  • Understand key concepts relating to sustainable development
  • Understand the role of life cycle thinking
  • Be aware of the ways in which sustainability can be framed and measured
