Community Education at the Constitutional Centre of Western Australia

The Constitutional Centre of Western Australia offers a wide range of educational opportunities for members of the community.
Last updated:

The Constitutional Centre welcomes requests from individuals and community groups for educational sessions, seminars and tours regarding the nature of Australia’s systems of government and its history. We are also able to offer sessions on civics and citizenship to university students (such as pre-service teachers), TAFE classes, and recent migrant groups.

We are also pleased to announce the development of new online educational programs and resources for members of the community who are interested in learning more about Australia’s system of government. They are also suitable for Western Australian public servants looking to refresh their knowledge in government processes.

A self-led online program on referendum processes is currently available at the link below, with further resources to be made available through 2024.

Please note: All visits to the Centre must be booked in advance – we are unable to offer walk-in education or tours. If you are interested in visiting the Centre, or have any questions about our community education offerings, please contact us at
