Our Learning Model


Our ‘Learning Pods’ allows you to complete a range of TASC courses while learning about renewable energy or marine science. Learning will be designed and delivered by specialist teachers in collaboration with University academics and Industry experts. You will study the topic through an integrated learning model using a combination of investigation, explicit learning and hands on experiences.

Days will not usually be separated into individual subjects, instead the courses will be integrated into projects which will allow you to answer a big question such as: Which is the best renewable energy source for my community? What impact do fish farms have on water quality? Do marine reserves improve species diversity? You will learn about real world applications of the courses you are studying. Learning will be deep, rigorous, and experiential.

  • You will gain the 21st century skills of critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration essential for future success.
  • Your learning will span the boundaries - operating across and between the usual discipline understandings.
  •  University and Industry experts will help you with your learning, connecting you to your future pathway in a real and tangible way. 
  • Research suggests that when you apply your learning in an applied context, you gain a deeper understanding and improved well-being.
