The goal of this project was to report on the implementation of the climate education curriculum in Worcestershire secondary schools from the perspective of faculty. First, we documented the climate education and climate change policies of England. We then worked with Students Organising for Sustainability UK to develop a teacher interview and with Senior Lecturer Elena Lengthorn at the University of Worcester to create a teacher trainee survey. The interview and survey were each used to identify successes and barriers to the implementation of climate education, and together revealed opportunities for the improvement of climate education. Our most prominent findings are that teachers do not feel prepared to teach climate change topics and have difficulty finding time to teach them.
