Collaborative Education to help more Tasmanian students

The Hodgman Liberal Government’s $15 million partnership with the Beacon Foundation and the Paul Ramsay Foundation is improving educational outcomes, strengthening schools extending to Years 11 and 12 and helping to create a job-ready generation of young Tasmanians.

The Collective Ed initiative helps improve Year 12 attainment in Government schools across the state, and today I am pleased to announce the next round of schools to participate.

Port Dalrymple School, Sorell School and Deloraine High School, will join current participants Bayview Secondary College, Jordan River Learning Federation Senior School, and Ulverstone High School, following the recent expression of interest round.

To help students develop the skills necessary to successfully transition into further education, training or career pathways, Collective Ed works with schools and industry to co-design and co-deliver lessons, delivering practical learning that aligns with current industry practice.

This is one of the largest public-private partnership investments in Australian education.

While we have made great progress with our Year 11 and 12 high school extensions, we know there is still more work to be done, which is why we will continue to back innovative programs like Collective Ed that are making a real difference in students lives.
