We are beginning the design of the website for the Banyule-Nillumbik Tech School.

Rather than use an external consultant we are working with some Melbourne Polytechnic students to design and build the website, giving them the chance to gain some real-world experience to add to their portfolio and also as a strong symbolic message to students of the capacity and opportunities that exist within the education community of the north of Melbourne. The website design team are highly experienced and will bring some fantastic ideas and input to our online presence.  The website will also be the home for our Tech School Bot. We look forward to sharing a special launch in the near future.

Banyule-Nillumbik Tech School Newsletter #1

Thank you to everyone who was able to participate in our recent Tech School Principal’s breakfast.

We hope that you it gave a better sense of what our Tech School will deliver and the importance of collaboration in ensuring that is delivers for our students and communities. The Tech School first and foremost is a community of practice and your place in that community is highly valued.

As part of this breakfast we outlined a number of upcoming activities. In embodying the Tech School ethos we will prototype the learning program leading to the grand opening in Term three, 2018.

We encourage you to get involved where you can. It is important that the Tech School is owned by schools and meet the needs of students to give them the skills they need to shape the future. Over the next term we’ll have some more exciting opportunities for students to experience real-life learning with some industry partners.

We look forward to developing the Tech School further with you. It’s an exciting development which promises many opportunities for the young people in the North.

Kind regards
Marc Blanks
Executive Director Banyule Nillumbik & Whittlesea Tech Schools
