Professional development



The Botanic Gardens of South Australia's education team delivers teacher professional development sessions for all staff throughout the year, from pre-school to senior secondary, covering a wide range of concepts.

All sessions are aligned to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers Framework, with certificates of attendance issued upon completion.

We offer professional development sessions either at the botanic gardens or at your site.
