1902 Education Society

The 1902 Education Society is a professional support network open to all ECU Education students, past and present.

Our name is a nod to ECU’s origins as the Claremont Teachers’ College, which was the very first tertiary institution of education in Western Australia when it was established in 1902.

From the moment you enrol at ECU through to your graduation, first years of teaching and even retirement, the 1902 Education Society is here to support you. You will have access to meaningful opportunities to connect, collaborate and network with peers, ECU academic staff and Alumni.

All ECU Education students and graduates are granted automatic membership and access to the benefits offered by the Society, which include:

  • An exclusive Mentoring program just for ECU teaching students and graduates (places are open for both mentors and mentees);
  • Regular, tailored professional development workshops;
  • Social events, including barbeques, coffee catch-ups, board games and sundowners;
  • Opportunities to share resources and be at the cutting edge of using technology in the classroom; and
  • For new teachers, a series of professional learning sessions designed to support your transition into teaching.
