AUSTRALIA - Poultry CRC is making more resources available for schools and poultry industry training.

The Poultry CRC's production of poultry industry training manuals for use in the VET sector is continuing on schedule, according to the latest issue of EChook News. Commercial Layer Management, Health & Welfare – Principles of Health & Welfare (Book 1) has been completed and is now available for download for people teaching in this area in Australia as either a low resolution PDF suitable for on-screen viewing (3.7MB) or a high resolution version suitable for printing (20.5MB).

The CRC is grateful to a number of avian veterinarians who have generously donated their time in the supply and annotation of photos and proof-reading of texts. In particular, we would like to thank Balkar Bains, Peter Groves and Neil Christensen.

If you would like access to our secure web site to download a copy of this manual, and others once they are completed, please contact CRC's Education Officer, Liz Roan, for a login.

Roll-out of the distribution of our Teacher's Resource Kits is also continuing, with over 300 schools nationally having now received the kit. Currently, the CRC is polling teachers via an online survey for feedback on how useful they have found the free posters, books, DVDs and lesson plans. CRC is striving for continuous improvement, and following analysis of the results, it will be providing even more great materials for distribution to Australian Schools.
