Teachers' Professional Development (TEN)

Free professional learning events each term for school and ELC educators, support staff and parents  to network, share resources and connect to the local environment. A wide range of topics are covered with a focus on embedding sustainability and environment education in classroom teaching.

Emphasis is on STEAM/STEM and inquiry-based learning with a variety of topics covered such as climate change and ecosystems, habitat improvements for local species and plastics in our oceans and on land.  Our workshops are open to all teachers who are motivated to bring the issue of sustainability to the fore in their schools. Schools who are enrolled in Resource Smart will find these workshops helpful in providing inspiration and direction.  

Our next TEN workshop is on Wednesday 30th October, 3:45pm - 5:30pm at Gardenvale Primary School.
Topic: School Biodiversity by the Bay. 

Join us for our last TEN Teachers' Professional Development workshop of 2019 - an inspiring and interactive tour and meeting showcasing local school biodiversity.

Our hands-on TEN workshop will give teachers and educators the opportunity to exchange ideas and lesson plans on local school / ELC biodiversity and to find out about available biodiversity grants and resources. The energetic Tim McRae will be our tour guide as we explore the sustainability and biodiversity achievements of Gardenvale Primary School.
