Our Gold Partners

Our Industry Partnerships

Developing strong, positive and effective partnerships between our school and Victoria’s leading industries contributes greatly to our students’ successful learning and development.

Each of our partners has embraced the exciting opportunity to join our new industry partnership program and support our 21st century science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) development where creativity and innovation meet.

Program Objectives

  • Develop STEAM literate, confident, articulate and worldly graduates, who have the knowledge of, and familiarity with, the needs, methods and attitudes of business
  • Design and maintain an academically rigorous program that meets university criteria, and fulfils legitimate employer needs for graduates skilled in STEAM disciplines
  • Provide a quality education that is relevant to the current needs of our students and industry partners, while maintaining a steadfast commitment to 21st century educational principles
  • Provide our students with an education that combines classroom and on-the-job learning that prepares them for productive employment.

Research and Development Opportunities

Our industry partners have the opportunity to be involved in collaborative research projects through the Bradbury Club (further information available on the College website). They also benefit from the teaching resources available at the College for staff development and training.

Marketing Opportunities

The industry partnership program provides an opportunity to participate in student career development and marketing events at the College, eg Future Pathways evenings, mentor and coaching leadership through our mixed mentor groups, and involvement in our annual College Discovery Day that welcomes over 1,000 visitors to the school.

Networking Opportunities

The program also provides our industry partners with a range of opportunities to network at College events, eg careers days, parent information nights etc.

Industry partners are also offered opportunities to discuss business matters with our Student Pathways Consultant and academic staff as well as general recruitment and student pathway issues.

Industry Partner Commitment

Industry partners are not required to make any long-term commitments to the program and are not expected to offer employment to our students. Our expectation is that your organisation will benefit from the partnership through marketing and networking opportunities.

For further information on our industry partnerships, including the financial commitment (Gold Partners), please contact Catherine Middlemiss, Director of Development, Communications and Marketing on 5222 0459.
