Accommodating all learners: a new design for learning
Esperance Anglican Community School offers a new design for learning following the introduction of the Big Picture program in March of 2017. In 2018, we will offer the program to students in Years 9 to 12. To find out more about its launch and what the Big Picture Program is, read our blog.
Fundamentally, the Big Picture program allows young people to achieve their potential by specialising in areas of study they have a genuine interest in.
With a philosophy grounded in educating one student at a time, Big Picture supports students in creating a personalised learning plan based on their own passions and interests.
Introduced by Big Picture Education Australia in 2006, the Big Picture program is a rigorous and highly personalised approach to education that combines academic work with real-world learning, providing an alternative route to university.
With the student’s own interests and passions at the centre of learning, students work with an Advisory group made up of family members, peers, a dedicated Advisory Teacher, and a mentor from the broader community to develop a portfolio of work as a product of their own learning plan.
By making learning personal and relevant, EACS is accommodating all learners, improving productivity, increasing student engagement and instilling a lifelong love of learning.
