Embedding the Sustainable Development Goals in Teaching and Learning in ETB Schools

The ETBI Take 1 Programme aims to develop and promote ETB schools as Sustainable Development Goals schools, who use the formal and non-formal education space to engage with Education for Sustainable Development through the Global Goals.

Take 1 aims:
  • To support schools to embed learning about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in Teaching and Learning 
  • To strengthen schools’ engagement in linking formal, non-formal and extra-curricular activities towards the achievement of the Global Goals.
  • To support schools in committing to the inclusion of the SDG agenda as part of their school policy and wellbeing programme

Key to making the SDGs successful is to make the data on the 17 goals available and understandable. While issues around climate change and climate action have dominated the SDG agenda in recent years, awareness of and achievement in all 17 Global goals by 2030 is vitally important.

The TAKE 1 Programme promotes an SDG awareness raising campaign in ETB schools, which will include support to engage with the Global Goals in a formal way through classroom experiences. Resource materials have been developed, highlighting opportunities for all subject areas to include references to and activities around the Global Goals.

Each teacher involved is asked to teach about 1 SDG to 1 class group any time during Take 1 Week

Teachers and school management may have engaged in previous training (October 2019/February 2020) where they will have been encouraged to review the support materials aligned to their own subject area, with a view to teaching their regular class material/topics but referencing the most appropriate SDG for that topic.

Schools highlight their activities throughout the school and on various social media platforms, using the #ETB_SDGS and tag @ETBIreland on Twitter
