Taronga’s accredited, registered and non-registered courses are developed and delivered in partnership with Curriculum and Teacher Quality Advisors from the NSW Department of Education, Catholic Education Office, Zoo and external experts.

Teacher Professional Learning

Courses are delivered at Taronga Zoo Sydney or via Adobe Connect sessions. Taronga’s courses focus on Science, Technology and Geography syllabuses and ways to integrate the mandatory cross-curricular priority areas of Sustainability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. 

Project Based Learning and youth leadership are other focus areas with specialist courses designed to assist teachers with syllabus interpretation and integration, using Taronga as a rich and powerful learning resource for students to engage with nature.

Together we work with you to develop exciting and relevant curriculum materials that will enhance your teaching and learning.

Scheduled courses run throughout the year and can be booked by registering online at My PL@EDU.
