As we educate and train so many of the future workforce, Bendigo TAFE believes education and training organisations have a unique opportunity to contribute to a sustainable future. But to do this effectively, we have to re-educate and re-train ourselves so that we lead by example.
Our Environmental Sustainability Strategy articulates our commitment and the steps that we need to take to contribute to a sustainable future for ourselves and all those who come into association with us.
We have set up a structure that will support and deliver our strategy within both the education and training teams and support operations of the Institute. Within each team there are numerous staff who have been nominated as 'champions'. Their role is to generate the momentum needed to create change within ourselves and the students that we teach.
We have also developed an Environmental Sustainability Strategy for 2011.
