ACHPER WA offers a comprehensive suite of professional learning conferences, workshops and events throughout the school year conducted during school terms, both in and out of school hours. Thousands of WA HPE teachers have identified and shared their challenges with us. We have used this knowledge to develop a professional learning program which addresses the key needs of our profession.
