Learning is changing. Now you can drive it.

Two South Australian public schools. Two unprecedented opportunities. Both offering education leaders the ability to break new ground in learning, and create new and extraordinary outcomes for students. Each role will oversee a contemporary, purpose-built facility which enables a ‘learning on display’ culture. Make no mistake, these are positions that have the potential to make an incredible impact on the future of Australian education, and improve thousands of lives for the better.
