Whittlesea Tech School connects industry to learning through authentic innovation opportunities. Industry partners are businesses and community organisations who share our goal of sparking innovation and creativity in the minds of young people to bring about change.
Industry partners take many forms and commitments can be big or small. Partnerships can include sharing resources, mentoring, networking or providing problems for young people to solve as part of Tech School learning experiences. They can be one-off events or long-standing partnerships.
Getting involved as an industry partner is a highly rewarding experience. Not only do you get to help inspire the next generation, your organisation may benefit from the creative and energetic outlooks of our young people to the problem that your business needs solving. Most of all, your contribution helps to shape the future workforce in a world where change is one of the few certainties.

Whether it’s solving a specific industry problem or giving students the chance to gain real-world experience within your sector, we will collaborate with you to create an interactive and practical learning program for our secondary students.
Masterclasses give our students, teachers and community members an in-depth learning experience in a particular area or discipline. Masterclass Partners will share their expertise and knowledge to help develop specialised skills, encourage curiosity and prepare young people with the skills they need for the jobs of the future.
As a Resource Partner, you will be able to provide students, teachers and community members with access to the latest technology, innovative materials and cutting-edge solutions whilst they learn.
Tech School events are a great way to increase your network, brand awareness and potential employee outreach.
Our industry partners encompass a range of fields from community organisations to technology, medical and scientific companies and universities. The size and scale of these organisations vary from small local start-ups to multinational corporations. We believe diversity is our strength and this is certainly embodied in those organisations in which we collaborate. Our key partnership criteria are that the partnership provides growth and opportunities both for the industry partner and the Tech School. Each partnership begins with a conversation, so get in touch.
