Demelza Annison is part of our education team working on waste and energy projects in Devon. Her main areas of interest are primary education and composting in schools. An experienced teacher, Demelza is responsible for delivering the waste education programme in schools across Devon; designing and delivering workshops, assemblies, teacher training events and more. She also line-manages staff on the energy education project, ensuring targets are met and handling the day-to-day running of the contract.
With several years’ experience of education across all age groups, including post-16, and having worked in a variety of settings, including primary schools and outdoor education, Demelza brings a wealth of experience to the team. She draws upon her knowledge of the curriculum and challenges faced by schools to design and deliver coherent and engaging programmes of education on waste, composting and energy issues. Demelza has led and worked on large-scale education projects including ‘Composting in Schools’, which delivered practical training, specialised composting equipment, workshops, assemblies and networking events to many schools. More recently she has developed the ‘Compost Curriculum’ – a handbook resource for schools to incorporate composting into their teaching and curriculum planning. Demelza is an enthusiastic and competent practitioner; equally at home, working as in individual, or as part of a team.
