Teacher Professional Development

ResourceSmart Schools

Our Educators are qualified ResourceSmart Schools Facilitators and Assessors and can work with your school to develop and implement teacher professional development workshops on core, biodiversity, energy, waste and water modules. We can also assist you to develop your core documentation (SEMP, Sustainability Policies and Action Plans) and step your teachers and students through completing the resource module audits (biodiversity, energy, waste and water).

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.
We proudly work in partnership with Aunty Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
