PD and Connecting Up

PD and Connecting Up

Play Australia offers a range of professional development services and events to build the capability of professionals to create quality play opportunities for children and communities.

We also have a number of ways to connect organisations and people to ensure we foster strong networks of support across Australia, toward better play provision.

Online Learning Series

Play Australia is pleased to present our Online Learning Series to support PD and connecting up – including:

  • Standards Sessions provide the opportunity to join with Play Australia’s panel of national experts to discuss the latest Australian Standards and topical issues in the risk management of play spaces.
  • Play Today PD Sessions are opportunities developed to connect our Members with experts globally and hear them informally discuss topical issues in play, risk and play space development.
  • Special Events are organised as required to respond to the needs of the day.
