English teachers in primary and secondary schools in Hà Nội will be invited to take part in this training programme encouraging the introduction of climate content in the classroom through project-based learning.
Selected teachers will join a 12-hour course on the NILE platform consisting of modules on planning classroom projects that integrate drama and storytelling, plus live sessions on Zoom and face-to-face. Teachers will showcase their learnings and the work of their students at a one-day conference in Hà Nội. A Resource Pack containing lesson plans and projects created throughout the programme will be compiled and shared with teachers across Viet Nam.
