Stepping Up in Sustainability: Cambridge Regional College - Developing change agents to support sustainability issues within academic roles


This project looked to develop two change-agents for each of four academic areas (hair and beauty, engineering, essential skills and motor vehicle). One agent would be chosen from the academic team, the other, such as technicians or Operations Leaders, from the support team. The project created a VLE area from which material relating to sustainability could be downloaded. As a result, the project aimed to encourage general sustainability within the academies, develop and embed learning materials, relate the issues of sustainability to the academy's own procedures and practices, monitor and report the sustainable practices of the academy and create a sustainability plan and reporting system for each academy.
