    EETDP Learning Programme 

    The EETDP Learning Programme will provide you with a broad framework of knowledge and skills essential to progress along a career path as a knowledgeable environmental education practitioner. It focuses on skills, knowledge, values and attitudes required in environment education.  

    The EETDP Learning Programme allows you to work towards a nationally recognised whole qualification and is credit-bearing towards the National Diploma in Environmental Education, Training and Development Practice, a registered qualification with the South African Qualifications Authority. Our EETDP Learning Programme also allows for open access, bearing in mind the learning assumed in place, and you can enrol for full-time, part-time studies or recognition of prior learning, due to its flexibility. 

    On completion of the EETDP Learning Programme you will be able to design, plan, implement, evaluate and improve on a variety of environmental learning programmes. You will be able to design new, original and innovative learning support materials to enrich the learning experience. People qualified at this level will make a meaningful contribution to environmental change through an educational response to environmental issues and risks in a range of contexts and workplaces. You may also be able to function as teachers' aides or environmental education specialists in formal education settings like schools.
