EDUCATION IS THE #1 CONCERN FOR YOUNG AUSTRALIANS

WE HEAR YOU & UNDERSTAND THAT

The world is innovating and growing more complex every day, however formal education hasn't innovated along with it.

 

You want to learn more practical skills to be prepared for the future of work and life.

 

You want more say in what you learn and how you learn it.

You want an education that is effective, relevant and relatable.

Schools in regional and disadvantaged communities are being left behind.
