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.

The program has tested and adapted key elements of this innovative US approach to education-industry collaboration.
