The Vocational Graduate Certificate in Education and Training for Sustainability (VGC ETfS) is the first nationally accredited VET course in education for sustainability in Australia and is designed for educators from all sectors – particularly the tertiary sector ‐ to professionally ‘upskill’ in learner‐based change for sustainability. The VGC ETfS draws on many ways of knowing ‐ systems and critical thinking, values and worldviews, psychology, behaviour change, communication and collaborative skills, progressive educational pedagogies, action research ‐ to educate for a sustainable future.
The VGC ETfS is designed so that it can be shaped and contextualised to a wide range of educational contexts across Australia. The course projects and assessment tasks are all integrated into the teaching and curriculum contexts of the participant and are designed to initiate change at both the individual and institution levels, as well as build a community of practice within all the participants and their networks. The VGC ETfS is currently being taught in NSW, QLD, and VIC through VET and Community College based cohorts and new cohorts in Higher Education and the secondary sectors are being planned.
