PROJECT UPDATE

The Tech School facility is under construction. While this is happening, the Tech School host, committee and director are working with partner schools and local industry to finalise initial learning programs and determine administrative and equipment arrangements to ensure the Tech School will be fully functional when it opens mid-2018.

Secondary school students from the Wyndham area will have access to cutting edge learning at Wyndham Tech School, hosted by Victoria University.

The Tech School will be a high-tech learning environment. Its innovative education programs will link with local industry to deliver real world learning. Students from 18 partner schools in Wyndham will access the Tech School throughout the year for specialised programs.

Wyndham Tech School will emphasise the vital science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills needed for the 21st century. It will enhance the programs schools provide, and help prepare students for the jobs of the future.
