The Parliamentary Education Office provides professional learning for teachers and pre-service teachers. Our programs align with the Australian Curriculum, and help teachers deliver informative and engaging parliamentary and civics and citizenship curriculum for their students.

During a workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to:

  • enhance their knowledge and understanding of the Australian Parliament
  • develop skills and techniques to engage students with Australia’s system of government and how our democracy works
  • experience fun and engaging classroom activities that explore the function and significance of the Australian Parliament
  • come away with a collection of curriculum-aligned interactive and immersive teaching resources and strategies.

We offer a range of programs throughout the year.

Workshops are free and are delivered onsite at Australian Parliament House, via video conferencing, and as part of the PEO outreach program.
