Environment and Climate Change courses shared by LB Brent

car-exhaust-fumesLB Brent has recently updated its six Environment and Climate Change e-learning courses to reflect feedback from learners and colleagues. 

The courses have been authored by the Environmental Policy and Projects team within the council using the Learning Pool authority tool and include an interactive game.

The six courses cover Natural environment at Brent, Waste management, Climate change, Sustainable Transport, Environmental Information Regulations and Environment Management. 

Three of the courses are mandatory to all new joiners to the council as part of their induction and all six are available to all staff on request.

The whole of the Environment and Culture department at Brent, circa 1,000 members of staff, has been tasked with completing all six courses within six months.  This includes office based and none office based staff such as park wardens and street care workers who will take the courses from the dedicated e-learning resource centre the council operates.

The e-learning courses form part of a blend of learning on environment and climate change which is a key priority for the council. 

There are various schemes on the council’s website which raise awareness of the department’s priorities and, in addition, in house training courses are run on some of the issues for those who need an in-depth understanding of the topics covered.  But e-learning is the main resource for staff whose day job isn’t environment based.

LB Brent’s Stephanie Chesters said “The support and help I’ve had from Learning Pool has been great, especially from Ben who has helped me convert the courses to the latest version of the Authoring Tool.”

The courses have been shared into the Learning Pool catalogue so subscribers can download and repurpose them now.  If you’re not a Learning Pool subscriber and would like guest access to the courses please contact us.
