Work begins on new Whittlesea tech school for Melbourne’s north

Students in Melbourne’s north are a step closer to having a high-tech learning centre on their doorstep after construction started today on the Whittlesea Tech School. The Whittlesea Tech School, which will be hosted by Melbourne Polytechnic at its Epping campus, has been designed by ClarkeHopkinsClarke architects and will open in mid-2018. It will be a shared learning hub available free of charge for students from 13 government and non-government schools across Melbourne’s north. With a focus on advanced manufacturing, scientific and technical services, healthcare and social assistance, entrepreneurial skills and food and fibre, the new Tech School will emphasis skills needed for careers in the 21st century. The Andrews Labor Government is investing $128 million to establish 10 Tech Schools across the state as part of the Education State reform agenda. Tech Schools are part of the Labor Government’s plan to boost performance in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects. Tech Schools use high-tech equipment, such as 3D printers, audio visual platforms, robotics and virtual reality, to deliver advanced education in STEM. With the turning of the sod at Whittlesea Tech School, each of the 10 state-of-the-art Tech Schools is now either operational or under construction.

Small business bus brings advice to Whittlesea and Doreen

Small business operators in Whittlesea and Doreen will be able to access free mentoring, support and government business services when the Small Business Bus visits in September. The Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green, said the bus service provides advice from small business mentoring specialists skilled in marketing, finance, human resources and sales. “These experts have extensive experience in operating small businesses and in senior business management roles and can potentially help Whittlesea and Doreen business owners with their knowledge and advice,” Ms Green said. “This program plays an important part in Labor’s commitment to providing Victorians with greater access to government support services to encourage business and jobs in places like Doreen and Whittlesea,” she said. The Andrews Labor Government doubled its mobile support for small business in 2015, with a second Small Business Bus delivering valuable advice to towns and suburbs across Victoria for the past two years. In 2016-17 more than 1,300 small businesses accessed free on-board mentoring, while a further 6,400 received assistance from information officers. This year’s enhanced touring program will take more information and services to more towns across the state than ever before, benefiting businesses that may not have the time or resources to otherwise access the available support. The Small Business Bus will be located at the Laurimar Community Activity Centre car park, 110 Hazel Glen Road, Doreen from 10am to 4pm on Monday the 18th of September. It will also be in the IGA car park, 2 Lime Street, Whittlesea from 10am to 4pm on Wednesday the 20th of September. Free mentoring sessions on board the bus are limited and bookings are essential.
