The Tech Schools initiative is part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to creating the Education State by ensuring every Victorian has access to an excellent education. This exciting initiative will invest $128 million to construct and establish 10 Tech Schools across the state with further ongoing funding to support operation.
Tech Schools will be hosted on TAFE or university campuses to introduce students to the tertiary education environment and smooth their pathways into post-secondary education and training.

The vision: high-tech learning centres shared by partner schools
Tech Schools will operate differently from technical schools and traditional secondary colleges. They will be innovative, shared learning environments that are managed and operated by a partnership of local schools, local government, TAFE, university and industry partners. Tech School students will still be enrolled in their local secondary school but will attend classes at a Tech School campus that is shared with the many other schools in their region.
Each Tech School will be unique because local stakeholders and the local school communities will shape its specialities and the subjects it offers.
Each learning centre will be managed collectively by the partnership. And the Tech Schools will be hosted on TAFE or university campuses to introduce students to the tertiary education environment and smooth their pathway into post-secondary education and training.
