Victoria's 10 new Tech Schools are centres of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) excellence.
Tech Schools help students think creatively, work together to solve problems, and help prepare them for the future by delivering the advanced education and STEM skills they need to compete in the future job market.
They link secondary schools to industry to deliver innovative learning programs that challenge students to solve problems in a real-world context.
Tech Schools complement the curriculum by providing access to advanced technology, industry programs and exposure to career pathways that secondary students may not otherwise have access to.
Students remain enrolled in local schools but attend classes at a Tech School campus that is shared by government and non-government schools in their region. They are hosted by universities or TAFE colleges, giving students a taste of higher education and potential career pathways.
