Teachers' Environment Network (TEN)

The Teachers' Environment Network (TEN) are free professional learning events that are run each term to support school and ELC educators, staff and parents to:

  • Network
  • Share resources
  • Connect to the local environment

A wide range of topics are covered, with a focus on embedding sustainability and environmental 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 and members of school-based "green teams" who are motivated to bring the issue of sustainability to the fore in their schools. Schools who are enrolled in the Resource Smart Schools Program will find these workshops helpful in providing inspiration and direction.  

Please register these TEN workshop dates in your 2021 calendar!
