Professional learning

Professional learning for Waste Wise Schools


Workshops are free and we offer teacher relief payments.

See the list of Workshops here or contact the Waste Wise Schools team at for further information.

Introductory sessions and webinars

Workshops provide an introduction to waste issues, school case studies and training on setting up a whole school approach to waste minimisation and education. 

We encourage more than one representative from each school to complete the professional learning together. Teachers, principals, registrars, cleaners, gardeners, canteen managers, parents/guardians, members of the P&C Association or any other school staff are welcome.

Workshops are held throughout the year in both metropolitan and regional areas. The webinars allow regional schools to access information when a workshop is not available in your area. These are free and a contribution toward teacher relief is provided, where possible, to facilitate attendance.

Waste Wise networking

Networking sessions are held at an existing Waste Wise School and include an opportunity to network and share successes, and solutions with other schools.  The workshop also includes a tour of the host school’s Waste Wise projects.

Waste Wise topic workshops

These are run in both regional and metro areas. Topics include:

  • worm farming
  • composting
  • Waste Wise gardening.
