Learning & Teaching
Learning & Teaching at Edinburgh

Learning & Teaching at Edinburgh College is closely entwined with our philosophy of teaching the ‘whole’ person. Our learning and teaching program addresses the spiritual, emotional and academic needs of all of the students in our care.

Quality of Teachers

Ensuring the quality of our teachers, in both performance and positive influence is a high priority at Edinburgh College. Research has recognised that teachers who have a shared belief, through their collective action, positively influence student outcomes, including those who are disengaged and/or disadvantaged.

 

Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum, the Encounter Bible Curriculum and the Keeping Safe Wellbeing Curriculum are used by our College for all subject areas, from Foundation through to Year 10. VCE subjects and coursework are offered through VCAA, VTAC AND TAFE programs.
