About Tech Schools

Tech Schools offer innovative, problem-based education programs that give students practical experience, with access to the latest technology and equipment. 

​​They are built on TAFE or university campuses to introduce secondary school students to tertiary education. Each Tech School's programs link with local industry needs and offer a unique learning environment.

The role of my local school

If your local school is in a Tech School location and part of the local partnership group, your students can participate in Tech School.

Tech Schools enable students to take part in programs and use high-tech equipment they would not normally be able to access at their school. 

Tech Schools are open to students from their local government, Catholic and independent schools.

Tech Schools do not offer trade training or qualifications.

High-tech learning centres shared by local partner schools

Tech Schools are innovative, shared learning environments that are managed and operated in partnership with local schools, local government, TAFE, university and industry.   

Tech Schools don't take enrolments, and students still attend their secondary school. Students can attend classes at a Tech School campus that is shared with the many other schools in their region.
