Our Future Leaders workshop develops teacher capability to recognise and unleash the potential of their students.
This hands-on workshop will provide teachers the tools and strategies proven to accelerate student-confidence, engagement, and ability.
With a seamless integration of the Australian Cross-Curriculum priorities, teachers will be able to implement the tools and strategies in any subject area immediately following the workshop.
I was very impressed with the seamless integration of technology to greatly assist the clear communication of your message, there is so much potential here to help engage children in meaningful experiences that will hopefully lead to real action and change.

This is a brand new, and blazingly innovative learning program. Essentially, we capture sustainability challenges from industries and facilitate insightful solutions through education. Our mission is to bring the real-world into the classroom by providing students with relevant, engaging real-world problems currently occurring in diverse industries. This program is the first of it’s kind in the world and brings student voice to the global sustainability conversation in a way that influences proactive change.
Challenge Based Learning is for those who want to engage in a multidisciplinary approach to teaching and learning that encourages students to leverage the technology they use daily to solve real-world problems through efforts in their homes, schools, and communities.
