The new school facilities will require a learning community with a future-focused approach, led by teachers with the capacity to teach collaboratively across curricula areas, primary and secondary education and design purposeful learning experiences for flexible spaces across shared facilities.

These new schools will be technology rich settings with an emphasis on mobility and flexibility. It will be essential that teachers are confident in the creative design of digital learning. As leaders in this innovative learning community, teachers will need to be responsive to change and able to adapt to new spaces and practices. 

This innovative approach encourages flexibility and authenticity in teaching to maximise learning outcomes for both students and teachers.

Successful applicants will champion the intellectual and emotional growth of learners including critical and creative thinking techniques, inquiry and self-expression that allows for the full development of each student.
