Sustainability was introduced in 2011 in the Australian Curriculum as a cross-curriculum priority (S-CCP). However, ten years on, teachers often lack understanding, confidence and competence to embed sustainability across the curriculum.

Training programs developed to address this concern largely focus on environmental education and providing information rather than equipping teachers with the skills needed to transform knowledge into action.

To overcome these issues, researchers at the Parenting and Family Support Centre are conducting a short survey to explore the barriers and facilitators that predict S-CCP implementation; the skills needed to support S-CCP implementation and preference of a professional development program to support S-CCP implementation.

Participant Benefits 

Responses shared in the survey will directly contribute to the development of a professional training program to promote sustainability education designed by Queensland teachers, for Queensland teachers.


We would love to hear your views and experiences if you are a teacher or school principal/leader in the Queensland education system with a minimum of 3 years’ experience
