Go Green Scheme

Go Green Scheme for the Education Sector

The Go Green scheme is an initiative brought to the education sector by Tel Group, allowing schools to apply for a one off £1000 funding towards their eco goals.

Tel Group is proud to launch its Go Green Scheme to support eco-friendly projects in schools. This program provides additional funding for current or planned projects focused on sustainability, which can make a significant positive impact on the environment.

With growing concern about environmental issues, organisations are increasingly striving to improve their sustainability strategies. The Go Green Scheme is an excellent opportunity for your school to get involved and take action towards a greener future.

By applying for funding through this scheme, your school can work towards achieving its sustainability goals. The program will also promote education and empowerment among students and staff.

Interested in applying for funding? Simply fill out the form on this page to be considered for £1000 in support of your school’s eco project.

What is the Go Green Scheme?

In 2022, Tel Group started the Go Green Scheme to allow MATs, schools, and nurseries to apply for funding towards their eco projects.

By completing the online form, schools can request a £1000 grant to support their initiatives. Two schools will be chosen, and each will receive £1000 in funding.

Your school has complete discretion over how to use the funds, but we’ve provided some suggestions to inspire you:

  • Improve your school’s eco curriculum
  • Set up or improve a forest school
  • Invest in an allotment area
  • Set up a school gardening club
  • Installing solar panels

    We’re excited to see how your school will use the grant to help create a greener future.

    Why was the Go Green Scheme set up?

    Many schools are making a concerted effort to improve environmentally friendly practices, not only for the benefit of pupils but also for the planet. However, tight budgets have made it difficult for these institutions to fund such initiatives. 

    Similarly, our company is committed to reducing our carbon footprint. One way we aim to achieve this is by collaborating with educational institutions and clients to take meaningful steps towards sustainability. 

    Previous experience working with schools on funded projects has shown that students, staff, and the institution as a whole can reap significant benefits from environmental initiatives.

    While we have already taken some steps towards this goal, including hosting the Go Green Scheme in 2022 and participating in the Solihull Greener School Awards, we are continuing to plan and implement further steps towards making a greater impact.
