CURTIN University has partnered with St Stephen’s School in a bid to boost the entrepreneurial and innovation skills of the next  generation of leaders.

As part of Curtin’s Innovative Schools Consortium, St Stephen’s students can take part in workshops and game-based learning to develop new skills and attributes valued by universities and employers.

The university will also help St Stephen’s staff to develop new curricula applying science, technology, engineering and maths to address real-world challenges.

St Stephen’s principal Donella Beare said the school was “excited by the opportunities this relationship will bring”.

“We are committed to giving our students every opportunity to pursue their academic goals,” she said.

“By working collaboratively with Curtin, we are ensuring our students are provided with an excellent education and that our staff are always at the leading edge of teaching.”

Curtin academic deputy vice-chancellor Jill Downie said the partnership, cemented with the signing of a memorandum of understanding agreement, was a great opportunity for both institutions to work together on developing new ways of learning.
