P-TECH is an innovative model of education-industry collaboration that provides students studying for their Senior Secondary Certificate with an industry supported pathway to a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree.
Partnerships between schools and industry provide opportunities for students to engage with the world of work and better understand the relevance of their learning to jobs and post-school pathways.
The Australian Government is investing $5.1 million to pilot the P-TECH model in Australia. Skilling Australia Foundation has been engaged to assist local stakeholders to work together to implement P-TECH learning programs at all 14 pilot sites across Australia.
The STEM focused P-TECH pilot has tested and adapted key elements of this innovative US approach to education-industry collaboration in the Australian context.
