Wyndham Tech School will have an educational focus aligned to:
- industries that are predicted to experience strong local economic and employment growth and explore new and innovative approaches to Health, Transport and logistics, Scientific and technical professional services and Construction
- understanding the community and world we live
- connected and intelligent cities
The Victorian Government has committed $128 million to establish ten Tech Schools across Victoria throughout 2017 and 2018.
The Tech Schools are located on TAFE or university sites and are high tech centres of learning for local government and non-government secondary school students to access enhanced learning experiences and improved connections to local industries and jobs of the future.
Wyndham Tech School, one of ten Tech Schools,is hosted by Victoria University (VU) on its Werribee Campus. As of mid-April 2018, construction is now complete and planning is continuing with a view to pilot programs being offered from mid 2018.
The Tech Schools use leading-edge technology to deliver the programs Victorian school students need to succeed in the rapidly changing global economy. The Tech Schools will introduce students to the tertiary education environment, creating smoother pathways into post-secondary education and training.
Secondary school students and teachers from 18 partner schools in the Wyndham area will access cutting edge technology and specialised programs in a purpose-built co-learning environment. The WTS’s innovative education programs will link with local, national and global industry and mentors to deliver real world learning.
WTS will emphasise the vital science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics skills needed for success in our highly disrupted global economy. It will enhance the programs schools provide, and help prepare students for the jobs of the future.
