The Life Ed Program
Consisting of 16 different modules, our program has been specially designed for preschools, primary schools and secondary schools.
Our program is delivered by a team of specially trained educators using highly interactive exercises and techniques. In recent times, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our program is also available online.
Definitely not a one-off intervention. Our program is designed to engage students from an early age and to be sequential; delivered year-on-year, building on learnings throughout preschool and primary school into secondary school.
Our program covers topics including; drugs and alcohol, personal safety, cybersafety, food and nutrition, physical activity, social and emotional wellbeing and the human body.
Healthy Harold has been visiting preschools and primary school with us for more than 40 years and there are no signs of him slowing down. He doesn't, however, accompany us into secondary schools though.
Mobile Learning Centres are used in most primary schools. Our pop-up classrooms are available for use in primary schools in selected locations. Preschool visits are facilitated in your learning environment.
The preschool and Kindergarten - Year 2 modules run for 60 minutes. The Year 3-6 modules run for 90 minutes.
Depending on the length of the module booked, we suggest 2-4 sessions per day.
The state offices can provide you with the scheduled educator’s WWCC number. The educator will also provide 100 point identity check when they arrive at the school.

Volunteering
Life Education has local offices and communities throughout Australia who welcome volunteers.
This depends on what time you have available and what you'd like to do for us. We will try to be as flexible as possible. Any roles that require a more specific time commitment will clearly state this in the role description.
For most roles we’ll invite you to meet us for a chat. It’s a chance for you to find out more about the role and the organisation, and we can better match your skills and interests to the tasks we have available.
Volunteers receive an induction and will be given all the training and support necessary to feel confident in the role. Staff members are on hand to provide ongoing help and support.
Many roles just require your time, energy and enthusiasm! Volunteer role descriptions will list any additional skills or experience you may need for example, having a background in health, education, marketing and communication, office administration, business, project management or related disciplines. Given the nature of our organisation, all Life Education volunteers will need to have a police check and a ‘Working with Children’ card.
Yes, we will ask you to supply this information on your application form.
If you're interested in sharing your professional skills and there are no opportunities that match this, please contact your local Life Ed office.
