The second Polar Prediction School will take place in Abisko, northern Sweden, from 17-27 April 2018. The school will provide in-depth training on all aspects of making polar weather and climate predictions. This includes hands-on field measurements, exercises using computer models, and lectures covering topics ranging from chaotic systems to high latitude ocean processes. Each component of the course forms a crucial pillar of the prediction problem; combining these will provide participants with a complete overview of what is required to predict polar weather and climate. This presentation will describe the curriculum and learning tools developed to train early career researchers in polar prediction, focusing on active and skills-based learning through small projects and exercises.
