Case Study: Resource and Recovery Education (RARE) Training Program
Client: Beverage Industry Environment Council
In 1998 the Beverage Industry Environment Council commissioned terra cordis to develop and implement the Resource and Recovery Education (RARE) Training Program, to provide knowledge and skills to environmental educators through accredited training, provision of resources and networking.
terra cordis consulted with industry, government and community stakeholders to develop the program, which included a 3-day training course, a regular newsletter, a web page (www.rareaustralia.com) and telephone / online access to training and presentation support materials.
RARE 3-day training sessions enable participants to achieve a statement of attainment in Train Small Groups (BSZ404A). The training also incorporates additional skills required by these educators including occupational health and safety, community liaison and communications knowledge.
Since 1989, over 450 environmental educators across Australia have been trained through this course in effective communication of waste management issues to their community. When we asked the participants what they most liked about the course, the answers were as diverse as the learning experiences offered through different tools through the course:
And some just couldn't decide what the best bit was!
I enjoyed the enthusiasm, the activities, the psychological theories, ways to deal with the audience, WIIFM theory, the rewards, the food, the textas...
Our commitment to actively engage the Learner applies to every aspect of our courses - not just the "content" elements.
