Achieving your award during the COVID-19 pandemic

We are living in a time where global learning is more important than ever, so we want to support you to give your students global learning opportunities in the most efficient and manageable way.

Following teacher feedback, we have decided to make some temporary changes to the award to support schools further in the coming months. We are now offering schools the option to defer their award application by six months. 

In order to defer your award, you need to login to your Fairtrade School account and click to ‘Request to defer your next application by 6 months’.

On top of this, we are also going to be working hard over the next few weeks to update our webpages with suggestions for how to complete the award through working virtually or within class bubbles.

If you have any questions, please email schools@fairtrade.org.uk.

Thank you for supporting Fairtrade.
