The learners audit is to find out what your students already know about Fairtrade and the world around them in order to tailor the Schools approach in designing the activities and implementing awareness drives.
It will also feed into a large-scale data collection of pupils knowledge across the grades and allow us to make the Fairtrade Schools Award as effective as possible.
A Steering Committee is the core team needed to steer or guide the smooth functioning of the Fairtrade India Schools programme. An Action Plan developed participatorily by the Steering Committee at the start of Stage serves as a tool to plan and implement the Fairtrade India School Programme. The step involves formation of the Steering Committee via invitation, election or nomination. The members should be drawn from Students, Teachers, School Administration/non-teaching staff, and Parents. The Steering committee will comprise of Students from classes that will participate in the Stages 1/2/3, Teachers in charge of the Fairtrade India School Programme, School Administration and Few Parents of students from primary/middle/secondary levels. Once the Committee is in place, it may be communicated to the school community and develop an Action plan to implement Fairtrade India Schools programme effectively.
