One of the key avenues for NRM Education to support schools is training for school staff.
Topic based PD around the themes energy, waste, biodiversity, transport, air, water, youth voice, food, climate change, education for sustainability, water management and taking action is available throughout the region. Other key issues covered include what is AuSSI?, effective student lead environment groups, School Environmental Management Planning (SEMPs) and whole-of-school Education for Sustainability planning.
Where appropriate PD will be run in partnership with other service providers, DENR and DECD staff.
NRM Education is planning to run a number of events in 2013. This provisional calendar is provided for your interest, but events are subject to change and confirmation of venue. Once events are fully confirmed, they will be advertised through our regular weekly digest.
Our next event is a Youth Voice PD on Thursday August 15th from 4.30 to 6.30pm at the Urrbrae Wetland Learning Centre. Targetted specifically at students and teachers who are interested in establishing, or improving, their youth voice group, students and teachers from four primary and high schools will share their experiences of youth voice models.
