About the Parliamentary Education Office
The Parliamentary Education Office (PEO) provides information materials and education resources to raise awareness and build understanding about the role of the Australian Parliament.
Working with students, teachers and parliamentary officers, the PEO offers a wide range of tailored, engaging and highly relevant education resources, including:
- experiential learning programs that enable students and teachers to understand the work of the Parliament;
- a website with news and information materials – such as fact sheets, videos and publications – about the core functions of Parliament, including representation, responsible government, law making and the separation of powers; and
- teaching resources covering key concepts of Australia's federal Parliament, including units of work addressing the Australian Civics and Citizenship Curriculum.
In addition, the PEO produces Parliament Now news, publishes the Australian Pocket Constitution and manages the Your Questions on Notice website.
