Burnley College Sixth Form Students help make the future of education “greener” in Government consultation
Students from Burnley College Sixth Form Centre have been sharing their views with the Government about ensuring a green and sustainable future in education.
It’s part of the Government’s “Net Zero” strategy and 25 Year Environment Plan. Hannah Eccles, a former pupil at Shuttleworth College, was one of the students invited to share her views with the Government’s national Youth Panel.
Hannah, who is studying A Level Maths, Chemistry and Environmental Studies, says it’s important young people are heard:
We are the custodians of the future; we will need the skills and knowledge to ensure we look after the planet.
It’s really important young people like myself are asked about our vision of the future and what we feel is vital in our educations moving forward.
The Government is keen to ensure future Students have ‘green’ skills and are looking at building them into the curriculum from A Levels to the new T Levels and Apprenticeships.
