Welcome to ABC Learn, the ABC's Education Gateway

ABC Learn is your gateway to the ABC’s key educational websites and email newsletters.

The ABC produces specific programs and services for schools and further education, like ABC Schools TV aimed at a lower primary to an upper secondary school audiences and Behind the News aimed at introducing school students to the world of news.

Also, some ABC programs that aren’t directly aimed at schools may be useful for education.

The ABC is currently undertaking a review of how it connects with students, teachers and parents.

In the near future ABC Learn will be home to trials of new services that aim to provide better targeted and more convenient access to the ABC’s educational material found outside of our specific education-related programs.

If you would like to take part in these trials, please bookmark this page. Alternatively subscribe to the Learn Updates email newsletter and we will keep you informed about the site’s latest developments.
