Student Programs

Due to the current restrictions related to COVID-19, we have modified and developed programs specifically for online delivery. Please see the online programs section below for more detail.

Yarra Ranges Tech School programs are co-designed with our industry, tertiary and community partners to ensure that students and teachers are exposed to real-world technologies, issues and trends. Human-Centred Design Thinking is at the centre of our program and is used to build and develop student's high-level transformative skills, including:

  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Critical Thinking
  • Problem Solving
  • Creativity & Innovation
  • Global Citizenship

In our programs, students will work in teams of 4 to 6 to complete the challenges. Team-based problem solving is a critical means of developing high-level transformative skills.

Online Programs

In response to the remote delivery of schooling, Yarra Ranges Tech School is offering the following programs and challenges to our partner schools. These programs contain a mix of teacher-led; self-directed and YRTS facilitated sessions that can be delivered as a whole day program or spread across multiple sessions. For more information, please contact us via yrts-bookings@boxhill.edu.au or 03 9286 9584.

Teachers can also access a wide range of online materials and resources via the Department of Education FUSE website: https://fuse.education.vic.gov.au
