P-TECH Australia has been recognised as part of Boss Magazine’s True Leaders list for 2017.
The True Leaders judging panel for 2017 includes heavy-weights like Kate Burleigh, Managing Director, Intel Australia; David Thodey, Chairman, CSIRO; Simon McKeon, Chancellor, Monash University; and Catherine Livingston, Chairman, CBA, to name a few.
Livingstone says True Leaders are willing to be controversial, to back the principles they believe in. “It’s putting yourself at risk. It’s standing up and knowing that whatever you say is not going to be popular or endorsed by everyone,” she says. “There are too few people who are doing that.”
The Australian Government Department of Education and Training has engaged Skilling Australia Foundation to assist local stakeholders to work together to implement P-TECH learning programs at all 14 P-TECH pilot sites.
