Collaborating with schools, universities and industry
What are Monash Tech School Partnerships?
Monash Tech School delivers STEM-focused educational programs that prepare the students of today for the jobs of tomorrow. Our program design methodology relies on partnerships with schools, universities, industry and community groups to build and deliver educational pathways that address the needs of each of these groups. The needs of these groups differ, and our partnerships are designed to address each group specifically.
We partner with government schools in the City of Monash catchment area to deliver online and in-person programs to student groups.
Our school partners comprise over 11,000 students and around 1,000 teachers. We work with both teachers and education support staff to ensure that our programs not only map to the curriculum, but truly complement their own curriculum delivery.
Teachers from partner schools co-facilitate all programs with us and provide ongoing feedback in respect to the delivery and content of Monash Tech School programs, while the leadership groups at each school contribute to the strategic direction of Monash Tech School.
We partner with universities to design and deliver each of our programs.
Our tertiary partners are critical to our operations, and we are very fortunate to have two exceptional Tertiary Partners involved with our Tech School. Working with our team, they contribute to the design, content, and delivery of each of our programs.
As our host institution, we work with Monash University across all aspects - academic, research and operational - to ensure the latest research, equipment, and data is available and covered in our programs. Drawing on their expertise in research, learning and teaching, we ensure that students gain an appreciation for the resources and skills essential for knowledge transfer and job growth.
Similarly, we work with Holmesglen, drawing on their expertise in skills training and practical simulation environments. This partnership also extends across faculties, further enriching the programs offered by Monash Tech School.
Research & Industry Partnerships
Our research and industry partners share our passion for bringing real-world scenarios and experiences to the students and teachers who attend Monash Tech School programs.
Building on the fantastic resources and industry clusters in Victoria’s priority sectors, we work actively with businesses and organisations to develop and deliver purpose-driven programs.
These partners, growing each week, have assisted in developing the focus and themes of all Monash Tech School programs. In addition they contribute expertise in the design of our programs, ensuring that we achieve our aim of providing students with real-world problem-solving challenges to complement their classroom learning.
Our research and industry partners are also critical in respect to providing mentors and case studies for students curious as to what a STEM focused career looks like. Through direct and indirect mentoring, virtual and physical tours students develop a clear understanding of the modern manufacturing and service industries.
We work with community partners to ensure that our programs and outcomes are inclusive, providing value for the entire community.
A core goal for Monash Tech School is to become a critical part of the City of Monash community. We are working with these groups to open Monash Tech School outside school hours for students, parents, family members, hobby and special interest groups to utilise and participate.
Outside of our secondary programs, we are developing programs and partnerships with community organisations to provide skills re-training and familiarisation with technologies currently in use by STEM-focused sectors.
