Welcome, Teachers!

Professional Learning workshops that support state-wide projects and DreamBIG Children’s Festival are again being offered by the Department for Education of South Australia.

  • Suitable for teachers - whether an arts specialist or non-specialist - of primary, special needs and secondary students.
  • Practical in nature and are designed to provide quick training.
  • Aligned with the Australian Curriculum: The Arts and intended to support students’ participation in the Festival, either through attending a performance or celebrating the arts within their school community.
  • Free for government school teachers, with costs being met by Corporate Office.

Professional Learning workshops on offer are:
