Greater Foundations23: Building career-based classroom learning. 

At Greater Foundations23, teachers from across the Greater Whitsundays will hear directly from industry leaders about the skills and mindset needed for the jobs of today – and tomorrow.

  • ACTIVATE industry skills in your classroom
  • EMPOWER your students for the real-world
  • ACCELERATE ‘future-ready’ learning

This one day teacher professional development conference will be held at the Resources Centre of Excellence on Friday 3 March, from 8.00am to 3.15pm followed by networking onboard the Wildcat, departing from the Mackay Marina at 4.00pm.

Curriculum expert Nicole Dyson from Future Anything will empower you and your colleagues to unlock future-focused pathways that guide students from classrooms to ‘new’ careers in the Greater Whitsunday region.

Teachers will enjoy insights from industry leaders in emerging and existing sectors including manufacturing; aerospace; biofutures and aquaculture and two immersive industry experiences in mining and tourism to provide a complete picture of the depth and breadth of regional opportunities.

The innovative Greater Foundations23 event will open your mind and transform your thinking about the real-world opportunities for our region’s students – and the role you as teachers play in helping them reach their potential.
