About the project
Secondary school students from the Gippsland (Latrobe Valley) area now have access to cutting-edge learning at the Gippsland Tech School, hosted by Federation Training at its Morwell campus.
The Tech School is a high-tech learning environment. Its innovative education programs link with local industry to deliver real world learning. Students from eight partner schools in Gippsland are able to access the Tech School throughout the year for specialised programs.
Gippsland Tech School emphasises the vital science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills needed for the 21st century. It enhances the programs schools provide, and helps prepare students for the jobs of the future.
The Gippsland Tech School will have an education focus aligned to industries that are predicted to experience strong economic and employment growth:
- Food and fibre
- New energy
- Advanced manufacturing.
$128 million has been allocated to the Tech Schools initiative for the construction and establishment of 10 Tech Schools across the state, with further ongoing funding to support operation.
