The competence of educators has been seen as a bottleneck to providing high quality education for sustainable development (ESD). This international project has distilled and refined existing work in this area and piloted training programmes with teachers and students of education. The session tells the story of the ‘Rounder Sense of Purpose’ competence framework, highlights its novel features, including the peer assessment model, and shares the impact on our students. We invite participants to share their experiences in this area, to make use of the framework and training materials and work together to develop the next generation of sustainability educators.
