One of the ways we are celebrating Design & Technologies Week 2023 is with the launch of our Industrial Design Students as Technicians in Schools program, which is developed with support from Creative Futures and in partnership with RMIT.

The aim is to connect schools that would like to improve the safety and quality of their Design and Technologies / STEAM education and offer innovative approaches to staffing.

We know from the DATTA Vic Technologies Teacher Shortage Report that 97% of schools in Victoria have difficulty finding qualified Technologies teachers and as result 86% of school are using out-of-field teachers as a necessity. We also know that there are few active courses focused on initial teacher education Technologies teachers.

Industrial Design graduates as Technicians can be a fantastic addition to the D&T faculty.  Many of them are seeking part-time work in design fields and bring skills in traditional and emerging technologies. They are also positive role models for your students, and have an understanding of the design sector.

 This program can connect you to young, highly skilled individuals that can help to support your faculties now and in the future. Industrial Design students are well-placed to help you in a range of areas, and could even become your future teachers!

Join us at this event where you'll hear from Industrial Design students/Graduates who are now working in schools as technicians, and the teachers who have employed them. You'll discover the positive impact this has had upon the faculty and the school, and will cover the practicalities of establishing and managing this role.
