Teacher Professional Learning

Supporting teachers.

Taronga offers Teacher Professional Learning courses to help support teachers of all Stages. Courses are developed and delivered by Taronga in partnership with the NSW Department of Education.

Staff Development Days

Bring your staff to the zoo and engage in professional learning designed to provide teachers with practical skills that help students engage with the living world.

The courses are delivered in person at the Taronga Institute of Science and Learning at Taronga Zoo Sydney.

Staff development days can be booked at any day in the year and will focus STEM and design thinking skills or enhancing literacy skills through writing and creative activities.
