Permaculture Teacher Training – Byron Community College
September 24 @ 8:30 am – September 30 @ 5:00 pm
Want to inspire others to learn about permaculture? Join us for a seven-day intensive teacher training course that’s been designed to empower you to become an effective and creative permaculture teacher. During this course we will cover a sequence of steps to help you learn how to communicate clearly and confidently when teaching permaculture to others. Suitable for people of all abilities, these skills are also transferable for teaching/facilitating in other disciplines. We look forward to training the next generation of permaculture practitioners. The course covers: * Develop confidence in teaching using a range of skills, techniques and tools * Strategies and methods for the different topics in permaculture * Opportunities to practice and monitor what you learn * What is presently known about best teaching practices * How teacher behaviour and language can affect learning * What is known about learners and how to reach/motivate them effectively * Practical experience and knowledge of international permaculture curricula * Developing a PDC curriculum with a group of learners * New and emerging Permaculture content This course is the internationally accepted training course for permaculture teachers following the curriculum of Rosemary Morrow. Run in partnership with Byron Community College, certificates will be issued by Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute.
