Volunteer role

  • Are you passionate about environmental education?
  • Would you like to help encourage young people to become more environmentally responsible?
  • Would you like to help create great community cohesion in your Local Authority?
  • Would you like to encourage schools to become more sustainable and environmentally aware?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you may be interested in becoming an Eco-Schools Green Flag Assessor.

The Eco-Schools programme is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world. The Eco-Schools Green Flag is an international award schools attain to show their commitment to the environment. To gain the Green Flag, the school must be assessed by an Eco-Schools Green Flag Assessor. This process involves the assessor reading the school’s Green Flag application documents, and then visiting the school to meet the Eco-Committee and Eco-Coordinator to assess whether the Eco-Schools ethos is embedded throughout the school.

What will I be expected to do?

  • Using application documents and by conducting a visit, you will assess the school against the Eco-Schools Green Flag award criteria
  • Following this you will complete an assessment form
  • You will be fully trained to undertake assessments
  • You will satisfy the Eco-Schools Safer Recruitment and Safeguarding procedures and follow Keep Britain Tidy’s Safeguarding Policy
