CHEC impresses Victorian reps
THERE has been more recognition of our home-grown collaborative education model, the Coffs Harbour Education Campus.
Two representatives of the Bass Coast Shire in Victoria spent yesterday checking out how CHEC functions and caters to the diverse needs of high school, TAFE and university students.
The Bass Coast Shire is developing a post compulsory precinct (Year 10 and above) to meet the skills training and tertiary education needs of the second- fastest growing municipality in Victoria.
The Director of the Gippsland Region Department of Education Don Paproth, was impressed with what he saw at CHEC.
“We have now found perfect land to build what we need to build, and we are looking around for a model on which to base our precinct,” Mr Paproth said.
