Packages of Learning within the Big Picture Academy

WHAT IS A PACKAGE OF LEARNING?

Packages of Learning are a different approach to teaching and for students a different way to learn.  They offer students and teachers a suite of curriculum resources which adopts an integrated approach to teach the core subjects of the Australian Curriculum (i.e. English, Maths, Science, History or Geography), as well as Work Studies and Technologies. Health and Physical education, along with elective subjects, are taught outside the Packages of Learning.

Each Package of Learning is aligned to an industry. In 2019, four Packages of Learning are being developed for Years 9 - 10, with each package aligned to one of the four growth industry areas in Tasmania:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources
  • Architecture and Construction
  • Hospitality and Tourism

In 2020, Kingston High School will be offering this program in relation to Architecture and Construction
