Trainer Directory

Why Use Trainers?

One of the key features of Carbon Literacy is that training is delivered by peers – pupil to pupil or by regular teachers in schools and colleges, by workmates, colleagues or peers in the workplace, or by friends and neighbours in the place you live.

However, sometimes this is not entirely possible on its own, and you and your organisation may need support or need external assistance to do this. There is, therefore, an expanding group of Carbon Literacy trainers who can assist you in the development and customisation of your Carbon Literacy training, or help you to deliver it.

You can contact these trainers and organisations directly from the directory below, or Contact Us if you would like further information.

CLCs – Individuals who have the most experience of developing and delivering multiple CL courses to a range of organisations.

CLTs – Individuals who have a breadth of CL training experience, most of whom have also developed a CL course.

CLFs – Individuals who help to deliver and administer CL courses within their organisation.

 

The individuals listed below are those who are both certified to CLF/T/C and who are open to training opportunities.

In previous lives, Susi was a research biologist (PhD 1983, UCL), then an independent film-maker. Television credits range from camerawoman on BBC’s ‘Under the Sun’, to Series Producer for Channel 4 educational commissions. Extensive overseas work included training and collaborating with filmmakers in developing countries. All this built concern and engagement with other societies and species who share our planet.

Susi holds a City&Guilds Level 3 Education and Training qualification and has taught film-making around the world, in community and NGO settings as well as institutions. She enjoys face-to-face work, but makes sure online training is interactive, not passive. A range of interfaces and activities take the place of props and physical tasks that once filled her training!

Pre-pandemic, Susi taught Carbon Literacy on behalf of BAFTA; during lockdown, she developed a fully online Carbon Literacy course, ‘CLIP’. She’s delivered this ‘in-house’ and with some really mixed cohorts, but with an emphasis on media, arts and design. She’s currently working with University of the Arts, London, to meld her course together with existing tailored toolkits for their extraordinary range of departments (from fashion to data-visualisation, metalwork to animation, artificial intelligence to painting). Currently working with the NUJ to tailor ‘CLIP’ for working journalists.

Organisations this trainer has already delivered Carbon Literacy to:
Most training has been ‘open’, but she’s also trained within television production companies, Central St.Martin’s School of Art, London College of Communication, and the National Union of Journalists
