Academy of Future Skills

The Academy of Future Skills is a team of specialist executive teachers who will support individual teachers and schools in STEM education. With the aim of strengthening our public school teachers and providing a place where students love to learn, we use a coaching model to plan and co-deliver rich, integrated STEM learning programs. All public school teachers have the potential to develop their STEM skills and knowledge under our job-embedded professional learning model. If you or your school wish to receive curriculum or pedagogical support, STEM or inquiry-based learning workshops, borrow our specialised equipment or classroom spaces, or need to consult about the teaching of STEM subjects, please contact our specialist team.
