Teacher Courses

Our teacher course has been developed to teach teachers how best to educate their students about Australian native stingless bees. It counts for 5 registered BOSTES approved hours.

Australian Native Bees for Schools (Enhancing sustainability, biodiversity, conservation and education in schools using native stingless bees).

The course has been developed to educate teachers about incorporating Australian native bees into their daily teaching practice through curriculum based information in line with the national curriculum. During the course cross curriculum priorities such as Sustainability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures are covered.

The bees used during the course are native STINGLESS bees so there are no problems with anaphylaxis.

The course duration is 5 hours and will run from 9am till 3pm. The sessions will include an introductory session, general information about native bees with a focus on social stingless bees, collaborative group work to enable teachers to best utilise resources provided within their own schools and a practical based session to discuss native bee husbandry.
Venue: Call today to organize a talk in your area.

Course cost: $250 – This includes morning tea and lunch, as well as a FREE copy of the educational resource booklet ‘Australian native bees for schools’.
