Emily is an Education and Learning Officer with RSPCA Victoria. Her role includes teaching school students about the needs and feelings of animals and the role the RSPCA plays in the community. One of the highlights of Emily’s work is inviting visitors into the Education Centre and Barn at the RSPCA’s Burwood East site. Many resident farm animals have become part of the education programs held onsite; where educators share rescue stories with participants, both face to face and via online classes.
The Education and Learning team in Victoria also offer holiday programs, short courses and deliver a Certificate II in Animal Studies in partnership with Box Hill Institute.
