Our Guiding Principles

In and About Education acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging; and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples today. We actively work with and learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander First People to ensure the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. 

In and About Education was founded to give participants in our programs to discover and explore the environment around them by immersing themselves with the "hidden stories" and heritage that is "a bit different" and special.

Participants in our programs deserve to interact with places, investigate its heritage and environment from a holistic and unique perspectives. 

Each experience is continually and thoroughly researched for deep understanding of each location, its heritage, hidden stories, knowledge of the how that environment functions and current issues about its management. 

Our program designers take great pride in providing participants with life long memories of touring and holistic learning experiences.

We work with you to design authentic and deep learning that can be local, designed specifically for your needs and interests.

The vision of the teacher of their unique community of learners is paramount to the design and implementation of any school based learning experience.

In and About Education collaborates with the teacher or group to execute their vision to give their learners and participant a highly valued, interactive, engaging and special experience.

We will continue to support the teacher with relevant resources to further upskill and develop their knowledge.

We value the effort and passion teachers have to keep inspiring their students.

We offer experiences that are value for money. Most current service providers of tours and learning experiences outside of the classroom offer prepackaged programs that lack flexibility, standard worksheets and resources, do not always offer interactive projects and tasks and can be expensive. 

Local learning experiences are designed cutting the cost to the students families and carers and engage students with their "real world" more effectively.

Learners who interact with primary research, raw data collection and hear stories about the environment they are working in are more likely to value their experience and feed their curiosity further.

"Real-world" tasks are given to learners to complete as they would as part of their role in the workplace or project team.

Students use the same methodologies and similar equipment to collect raw data for analysis and reporting.

In And About Education prides itself on following up on students findings, reporting and taking action on their experience.

 Program participants who use THE VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) can expect a secure and closed environment for your group whilst online.

In and About Education can work with your school to put the online experience on your school Learning Management System.

We will attend to any online issues as a matter of priority.
