Dear colleagues


May I encourage you to pass on to your students, information about the
Bachelor of Technology Education at University of Ballarat - an
undergraduate course to train design and technology teachers? The course
includes options to study a range of materials and systems areas.
Increasingly with the aging of the teaching force in our area, it is
important to attract young people who will inspire and pass on design
and technology knowledge and skills to the next generation. I had the
greatest pleasure of meeting one such VCE student on a school visit this
week, a young lady who is very interested in encouraging other females
into the area.


The website for information is:



Kind regards, Lorraine.
