These two ACT government schools have a formal partnership with the University of Canberra and have added UC’s name to their school names. The partnership was launched in March 2011 and is on an innovative and collaborative educational journey. It is a partnership between the schools, the University and the ACT Education and Training Directorate.
There are great benefits in working so closely together – for the students and staff of the schools as well as for the students and staff of the University of Canberra. There are six Academic Partnership Plans in place which have been developed by teachers in the school faculties working with the lecturers in UC faculties. These Plans have been supported by dedicated funds from both key partners and contribute to the overall operational plan which we have designed together.
The University remains committed to working with all schools in the capital and region, and expects the UC Schools partnership to be beneficial to the whole ACT government school system.
