Making connections: Parliament, students and communities

Professional development for teachers


In this 1.5-hour interactive workshop, teachers will participate in learning activities and discussions that will support their capacity to engage with civics and citizenship education. There will be a focus on making connections between Parliament, students’ lives and their communities.

Themes include: three levels of government, laws and rules, and representation. Drawing on relevant examples, activities and experiences, the workshop will provide teachers with concepts and resources that are aligned to the Victorian Curriculum Civics and Citizenship grades 3-6. These concepts and resources can be easily adapted to different primary school classroom settings.

Acknowledgement of professional learning

As well as providing insights and ideas to support your teaching practice, this 1.5 hour session will contribute to teachers’ professional learning requirements for renewal of registration, particularly addressing Standards 2, 3, 6 and 7 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

Attendees will be provided with a certificate acknowledging their participation at this session.
