Casey’s new cutting edge Tech School will be located at the Berwick campus of Chisholm Institute, right in the heart of the growing local community.

State Member for Narre Warren South Judith Couacaud Graley today joined with the Chief Executive Officer of Chisholm Institute, Maria Peters, Member for Narre Warren North Luke Donnellan and Member for Cranbourne Jude Perera, to make the announcement at the site of the new Tech School.

A planning group of local secondary schools, industry, local government and Chisholm Institute has been hard at work over the past year bringing the Tech School vision to life.

Now that the site has been chosen, work is proceeding on formalising governance structures and developing a curriculum for the new learning centre which will host students from surrounding government and non-government secondary schools.

The Casey Tech School’s industry focus will be Biomedical, Health and Medical Technology, as well as High Tech Manufacturing, Production and Processing technologies, giving our young people an important skills boost.

The $125 million Tech School initiative is part of the Andrew Labor Government’s vision to inspire and train students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects, so they have the skills needed for future jobs.
