Hub Groups are a collection of like-minded Home Economics Professionals who have gathered around a shared interest or for a common goal. The benefits of being part of a Hub Group are networking, support and further learning. Each Hub Group is autonomous and determines the direction and activities according to the interests of its participants. Currently the Hub Groups associated with HEIA SA are based around secondary school Home Economics educators and the regions in which they work. HEIA SA hopes to broaden the scope of Hub Groups available to our members in the near future.
