The leader in food and fibre education
Our Vision: An Australian Community that understands and values its primary industries sector
Our Mission: To engage and inform students, teachers and the broader community about the role and importance of primary industries in the Australian economy, environment and wider community, and the career opportunities available through the primary industries and along the chain of supply of food and fibre products.
- provide national leadership and coordination of initiatives to encourage primary industries education in schools through a partnership between industry, government and educators;
- commission, coordinate, facilitate and manage national projects to encourage primary industries education in schools;
- provide a source of credible, objective and educational resources for schools to maintain and improve community confidence in Australia's primary industries; and
- communicate primary industries research and development outcomes in a format accessible for schools and encourage interest from schools in primary industries related careers.
PIEFA operates and manages a web portal for teachers called Primezone. Primezone provides teachers with a one stop shop to access a range of high quality primary industries education resources from Foundation to year 12, all linked to the Australian curriculum.
