ISO 14090 Tailored Training


ISO 14090 – Adaptation to Climate Change: Principles, Requirements and Guidelines (published July 2019)

We provide targeted training courses on ISO 14090 - the first ever international standard on adaptation to climate change. The Climate Sense team led and played a key part in developing the standard and are now leading its implementation. All of this is channeled towards those in your organisation with interest and responsibility for adaptation outcomes, as well as courses designed to train trainers. They will therefore become familiar with the whole of the standard and can be supported during and after training to develop tailored approaches for your organisation to implement the standard.

Embedding Training Through Coaching

Training is intended as part of a programme to change practice. What training does well is to give the information needed to change our practice. Gaining knowledge and changing what is done are completely different processes. How well change actually happens depends both on the quality of the training and on what happens after training has ended.

With training alone, there is often a brief increase in performance and then a dip leaving trainees remembering only 35% of what they learned after 12 months with most of that loss occurring in the first few weeks.

Training followed by coaching greatly increases the retention of training knowledge and more effectively changes actions on the basis of that knowledge by as much as 40%.

To enable trainees to get the best value from their training, Climate Sense’s Nick Pyatt leads a panel of qualified business coaches to enable more effective change in practice resulting from Climate Sense’s high quality training.
