Teacher Professional Development

We are pleased that we are now able to re-activate our Teacher Professional Development Programme at the botanic gardens!

Our friendly education team deliver professional development sessions for all teaching staff, from pre-school to senior secondary.

We cover a wide range of concepts and 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 a botanic garden or at your site.

The safety and well-being of our visitors, volunteers and staff remains our highest priority and, in preparation for welcoming back teachers to our upcoming workshops, we are implementing COVID-19 compliant protocols to offer a safe and meaningful experience for all that attend.

Measures include:

  • Appropriate group sizes to ensure physical distancing can be adhered to as well as ensuring the quality of the workshop
  • Venues and spaces used during the workshop compliant with density requirements (2sqm)
  • Practicing of good hygiene before, during and after the workshop
  • Participants must continue to maintain physical distance (1.5m)
  • Participants must not attend if they are unwell
