Professional Development for Educators

Environmental Education has the potential to enrich and improve the teaching practice of educators and courses are presented as funding becomes available.  Courses are presented in partnership with Delta Environmental Centre who are a registered training provider with SAQA.  On these courses educators are introduced to environmental issues, and appropriate methods that can be used to educate learners.

We also present a Five-Day course in Eco Literacy in partnership with SEED, which basically covers permaculture.  Our well-developed permaculture garden is very well suited for this purpose where aspects like the following are addressed: permaculture design and principles, water cycle and water management in the garden, soil and soil management, and plant systems.  The five days spent at our centre is not only very enriching, but can also open up a new world to the educator and improve teaching practices.
