Education Campaigns Australia (ECA) is an educational consultancy that develops school curriculum resources and programs for clients wanting to engage with youth and secondary schools. It offers online and blended learning design and multimedia content development, project management, and specialist educational writing, editing and publishing.
David Williams from ECA moved into MIC Greensborough in June – right on the cusp of launching a new phase of the business. This will combine its capability and experience in public relations and education to help clients achieve their awareness, learning, and behaviour change goals.
“ECA has developed a trusted network of companies and talented individuals including award-winning writers and editors,” David explains. “We are always on the lookout for creative freelancers and engage them often.”
David is currently teaching at Melbourne Polytechnic, and has been a secondary teacher for 12 years. He has also worked in corporate elearning and was general manager of a national training company and CEO of a Registered Training Organisation.
A current ECA project is Disaster Resilience Education, which is being rolled out across Victoria in both private and public schools. This explains disaster resilience to students, particularly those in areas at high risk of natural hazards such as fire and flood. ECA is also redeveloping Country Fire Authority’s School Education Partnerships Program and Junior Brigades Program.
Melbourne Innovation Centre appealed to ECA with its networking opportunities and productive working space. “I like having the right space to meet clients and work alongside freelancers and collaborators on creative projects,” says David. The plan for growth in the next 2-3 years is to double revenue each year.
As for David’s passion for the industry: “I love helping clients to create highly engaging and effective learning experiences.”
