Schools and Further Education Resources
NEA seeks to change the behaviour of householders and their family members by promoting the efficient use of energy and encouraging energy efficiency improvements. Training and education can be used to influence behaviour change. Children in particular are heavily influenced by what others are doing around them and can modify the behaviour of their parents.
NEA’s Education Officer has worked with schools, colleges and universities to develop resources that encourage interest in energy efficiency and carbon reduction.
We have developed a range of school resources from key stage 1 to key stage 5 for teachers and students as well as resources for further education.
At a time when rising fuel costs are putting increasing pressure on household budgets, we are working with students to promote energy efficiency in the home aiming to help keep households out of fuel poverty. Increasingly education establishments are seeking to bring about energy efficiency behaviour change through student education programmes designed and delivered by NEA.
What we do:
During 2015 and 2016 NEA worked with further education colleges in the north east and north west of England, delivering short energy awareness sessions as part of preparation for independent living – potentially in private rented accommodation – statistically the poorest of the housing sectors. As part of the project we developed a short e-learning package that students could use in PSHE sessions. The link is below:
