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 TeachersEnsuring 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.
CurriculumThe 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. The Victorian Certificate of Education traditionally offered at Year 11 & 12 is available to Edinburgh College students in Year 10 in a limited number of subjects.
Subject offerings on campus are enhanced through active partnerships with Distance Education Victoria, Victorian School of Language and local vocational education in schools (VETiS) providers: Box Hill Institute, Swinburne University of Technology, Mullum & Yarra Valley Vet Clusters.
