Learning about careers and work-related experiences is emphasised in CfW as being fundamental to developing skills for work and life. 

With an environmental crime having been committed, educators take on the role of trainee NRW Environment Officers and take part in a day of cross-curricular outdoor learning, hands on activities and challenges.  Putting the Curriculum for Wales into action, can they investigate, gather evidence and build a case to take the offender to court?  Creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, planning and teamwork across the 6 AoLE’s will be required to ensure justice is served.

This training course offers face to face training in partnership with STEM Learning UK and Techniquest.  A £165 ‘Enthuse Bursary’ is available per attending teacher to pay towards supply cover.
