ACT Legislative Assembly


Professional learning for teachers

Know your local Assembly

The activity is aimed at teachers to increase their understanding of how the ACT Legislative Assembly works and how members are elected using the Hare-Clark electoral system. Primary, secondary and college teachers are welcome to attend this event.

This program will not only increase participants' knowledge of the Assembly but will provide a useful teaching tool for those teachers who are engaged in teaching Civics and Citizenship programs. In addition, teachers will be able to use the knowledge gained about the Hare-Clark system to conduct classroom or SRC elections. The activity will also include the opportunity for participants to meet and question some MLAs, and visit the Parliamentary Chamber. A certificate (record of attendance) will be sent to all participants.

Attendance at this seminar can be counted towards staff PD allocation, there is no cost for this activity.
