Helping teachers embedEducation for Sustainable Development in their teaching and learning
Take 1 Programme aims to support schools to communicate, raise awareness of, and embed Education for Sustainable Development as part of a broad curriculum, through the UN Sustainable Development Goals
Take 1 Programme objectives:
  • Provide professional learning opportunities to engage with and understand Education for Sustainable Development
  • Explore opportunities to link formal, non-formal and extra-curricular activities to the achievement of the Global Goals.
  • Support the inclusion of Education for Sustainable Development as part of school policy and wellbeing programmes
The Take 1 Programme methodology maps the SDGs to learning outcomes in Junior Cycle subjects, demonstrating how teaching and learning about sustainability can be aligned to existing subject syllabuses.Using this approach, every student, in every classroom, through every subject can learn about the interconnected nature of Education for Sustainable Development. Take 1 Week elevates these teaching and learning opportunities, by creating a focus on 'whole school' engagement.Each teacher involved is asked to teach 1 Lesson, about 1 SDG to 1 class group any time during Take 1 Week
