ACT Legislative Assembly

Professional learning for teachers

Know your local Assembly

Date: 11 October 2019

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. A certificate (record of attendance) will be sent to all participants.

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