Video conferencing program

Connect with parliamentary experts through Parliamentary Insider — the PEO’s video conference program.

Parliamentary Insider brings Parliament into your classroom. Students speak with experts and explore how Parliament works to make Australia a better place to live.

Our curriculum-aligned program explores the function and significance of Australia's democratic system of government. It does this through investigating:

  • how laws are made through Parliament
  • the responsibilities of representatives
  • the formation of government
  • how government is kept accountable.

Program topics can be adapted to suit your areas of focus. To find out more, please email PEOlearning@aph.gov.au
