Faculties

Special Education

We believe that every student can learn and has the right to learn and access the curriculum in a least restrictive environment. We have a responsibility to provide quality teaching and learning experiences which will enable every student to reach their potential and become valued and successful members of their community. Our role is to facilitate the successful inclusion of students with a disability into a comprehensive senior college by equipping students with skills which will enable them to navigate daily school life in a predictable, supportive and caring environment. Our focus is on preparing students for the transition to post school life through the provision of reasonable, meaningful, rigourous and dignified adjustments when required, differentiated instruction and individualised transition planning. Our faculty is comprised of experienced and highly qualified professionals who embrace regular reflection of their teaching, are actively involved in their own professional learning and are current with the latest research and best practice in the area of Disability and Special Education. We are dynamic and innovative educators who work collaboratively with students, families, colleagues and outside agencies, to ensure students achieve their individual academic, vocational and personal goals.

TAS

At Wyndham College we develop in our students the ability to be able to consider and be aware of the impact that designers and the nature of design has upon the world. The Technology and Applied Studies (TAS) faculty utilises both traditional and industry standard technologies to provide students with opportunities to engage in innovative design activities from a creative and practical aspect. The rapid rate of technological change in an increasingly knowledge-based society highlights the need for flexible technological capability, innovative thinking and effective communication skills.  Vital life skills such as team work, communication, time management and organisational skills underpin all Technology and Applied Studies design projects. TAS electives provide the opportunity for students to complete practical projects which are both challenging and rewarding. They allow students to develop a range of skills which are an asset both personally and later in the workplace. Course choices in TAS include Community and Family Studies, Construction, Food Technology, Design and Technology, Engineering Studies, Industrial Technology Timber products and furniture Technologies and Graphic Technologies, Hospitality and Textiles and Design.
