STEM Focused Learning

The Australian Government is investing $5.1 million to pilot the P-TECH model in Australia. The pilot is an innovative model of education-industry collaboration that provides high school students with an industry supported pathway to a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree. These partnerships provide opportunities for students to engage with the world of work and better understand the relevance of their learning to jobs and post-school pathways. The program has tested and adapted key elements of this innovative US approach to education-industry collaboration. The Australian Government has engaged Skilling Australia Foundation to assist local stakeholders to work together to implement P-TECH learning programs at all 14 pilot sites.
