About

The Banyule Nillumbik Tech School is part of the Victorian government Tech Schools initiative to move school education into the future. We develop and run specialist STEAM programs and activities that help prepare local students for the challenges of the future and the changing nature of work.

Our programs are designed in partnership with community, industry and schools in response to key challenges facing the local community.

Teachers deliver our programs both within their school and at the Tech School alongside our staff, utilising our cutting-edge facilities, equipment and expertise.

Partner secondary schools from the Banyule Nillumbik catchment can sign up groups of students for our core and specialist programs based on their school’s point allocation.
