The Gippsland Tech School is built on three principles:
- To strengthen employability skills
- To link today’s students with tomorrow’s jobs
- A model that is inspired by success
Research has shown the growth areas of the Gippsland region are food and fibre, health, new energy and advanced manufacturing. The curriculum at the Gippsland Tech School will reflect these growth regions and help give students the skills they need for the jobs of the future.
It is part of the Labor Government’s plan to boost performance in STEM subjects, including a 25 per cent increase in the number of Year nine students reaching the highest level of achievement in maths and 33 per cent more 15-year-olds reaching the highest levels in science.
