Create a 'Remote Virtual College' will enable remote and transient senior years students to access learning 24/7 outside of the traditional physical classroom environment.
Using technology and mixed mode delivery to create a 'Remote Virtual College' provides online access to contextually relevant learning opportunities; supporting these students to engage, grow and achieve.
Virtual schooling will enable students in remote communities to access specialist subjects and teachers that cannot be provided at their school. It will also improve continuity in learning programs when students move between schools.
