The Geelong Tech School


Tech Schools are a part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to deliver the Education State vision for Victoria. Under the initiative, the Government is investing $128 million to establish 10 Tech Schools across Victoria.

The Gordon will host the Geelong Tech School scheduled to open mid-2018 in a new building at the Geelong city campus. The Geelong Tech School will emphasize skills needed in future workforces including thinking critically, communicating clearly, working collaboratively and embracing technology. 

Its focus will be on industry-led projects in a high-tech environment. Innovative educational programs will be developed collaboratively by industry partners and teachers while being supported by experts in their fields. Technology will include virtual reality, computer applications, 3-D printers and laser cutting machines.

Students from 22 participating schools in Geelong and surrounding areas will access the Tech School throughout the year for specialized programs linked to local industries. This will allow students to develop and apply their skills and knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to real situations.
 
Through professional development programs teachers will be supported to be an integral part of the program delivery to foster applied learning through inquiry, design thinking and co-operation in order to extend students learning.
