Join as an Educator Member

Innovation. Education. Leadership. Your work educating people is essential to the spread of permaculture.

 
To support this critical work, we have created a new educators membership. 
The educator membership encourages and values your diversity while sustaining what we have found to be educators collective needs
 
With your membership, you will have access to an exclusive members portal and the ability to influence the direction of the membership, and education more broadly. 
 
All of this is in addition to the benefits that you get with our standard membership. 
 

Membership Features 

It's packed full of collaborative features to support your teaching. These features are in addition to the usual benefits of individual membership. However this is just phase 1 - the membership will evolve, getting even better, responding to members’ feedback.
 
  • The opportunity to create a new, improved 'Educator Profile'  directed at obtaining new students and showcasing your experience. Your new profile can link to your websites and courses and describe in more detail why students should study with you. Prospective students can use this to search for you through the PcA website. You can list your experiences & specialisms, and you can upload videos and images.
  • A fantastic educator's E-bulletin, packed with jobs, news and research in communication, marketing and leadership. 
  • A feedback loop via a poll to influence how your membership evolves and to influence the direction of education more broadly by suggestions topics for consideration by the EWG. 
  • A dedicated education network coordinator, ready to support you in your education needs. Jemma is available by phone, by email or video and can support you with marketing, communication and technology to promote yourself. 
  • Support with your marketing: 'how to market with us', 'new avenues' of marketing and 'learn' about how to market well, including a free business plan template!
  • Discounts and freebies in various areas.
  • A whole range of shared, collaborative teaching resources, teaching practice support, research briefings and policies, linking you with permaculture educators, globally.  
  • Up to date opportunities listed for educators, which are emailed to you as they are posted.
  • Branded templates, research briefings and off the shelf risk assessments.
  • Order student certificates through the portal

What is the educator’s portal?

In a nutshell, the educator’s portal is an online facility to help you teach permaculture
 
In the portal, you'll find useful resources, advice and help with many aspects of your work, such as:
  • Marketing
  • Certification
  • Best practices and innovation
 
It's also the place for you to easily contact and feedback to Jemma, your Education Network Coordinator.
