d) Provide a basic understanding of carbon emissions and their role in climate change, the climate emergency and global commitments.

To achieve the desired objectives, we took the following steps:
Content Development: InfoAware worked closely with Arun District Council’s Climate Change & Sustainability Manager William Page to customise our off-the-shelf elearning training to deliver their unique learning requirements.
Design and Branding: The training modules were designed with an engaging and interactive interface. Arun District Council’s branding elements and messaging were incorporated to create a cohesive learning experience aligned with their carbon neutral strategy.
Interactive Elements: To enhance learner engagement, interactive elements such as animation, embedded video, scenarios, and knowledge checks were integrated into the training. As a result, these elements encouraged active participation and provided opportunities for learners to apply sustainable practices in realistic situations.
Accessibility Considerations: The elearning training content was designed and developed to meet accessibility standards. This ensured that all employees, including those with disabilities, could access and engage with the content.
Deployment and Support: The elearning training modules were deployed on Arun District Council’s InfoAware learning management system (LMS). Technical support and guidance were provided to ensure smooth implementation and address any learner queries.
a) Increased awareness: The customised elearning training modules effectively communicated the council’s carbon neutral target. Moreover it raised awareness among employees about the importance of sustainable practices and carbon awareness.

c) Measurable impact: The integration of assessments and reporting functionalities allowed for the measurement of employee knowledge and progress. As a result, this provided insights for future training interventions and demonstrating the effectiveness of the elearning programme.
d) Consistent messaging: By incorporating Arun District Council’s branding and messaging into the elearning content, a consistent and unified message was conveyed to employees, reinforcing the council’s commitment to sustainability.
