About Us

Preparing students for careers and industries of the future

Our Design Thinking Model

The Gippsland Tech School is committed to challenging students to take charge of their learning and to push themselves to reach their full potential. To achieve this goal, we have developed a Teaching and Learning Framework to support our partner schools to understand how we can positively impact key educational goals, including the Framework for Improved Student Outcomes (FISO) and amplifying the voice of students in the design and implementation of experiences and curriculum at the Tech School.

The framework is based on the Design Thinking pedagogical model and we are committed to supporting educators and students in Gippsland to experience this innovative model in a practical hands-on approach. Our Teaching and Learning Framework has been developed in consultation with our stakeholders with guidance from the Gippsland Tech School advisory committee.
