Moorooduc Primary School
At the start of this month, the Moorooduc Primary School engaged in a whole-school EC Premium workshop to launch the platform with their dedicated Education Success Manager. Staff were supported to access their account, search the library, and engaged in learning on the platform in the one-hour sessions. Staff also made a commitment to themselves and their team regarding the learning they aim to complete in Term 1 of 2023.
The Moorooduc Learning Hub was set up in line with the school Strategic Improvement Plan with a focus on tangible and practical learning in their chosen improvement areas. The Senior Leadership Team has created an assigned learning journey for all staff who will engage in the whole school Professional Learning via the EC Premium platform.
Get in contact with your Education Success Manager if you would like to organise a launch workshop with your staff, to get excited and begin learning on your school’s learning hub. If you’re interested in how we can design a learning hub for your staff based on your Strategic Improvement Plan, reach out to us today via ec.inc!
