Our Approach

Our collaborative approach to curriculum

In partnership with you, we uncover detailed understandings of your school’s culture, cohort and educational objectives. We then work to co-construct purposeful and meaningful sequences of learning that focus on specific student outcomes, either whole units and subjects or shorter. This sequence includes teaching at Rubicon as well as in your classroom, with Rubicon teachers working with students pre and post their learning with us.

Before you apply to work with us, we ask that you identify your student learning needs and how time with us may be integrated into your school’s curriculum.

If your school is offered a place with us, the structure, timing and ultimate learning goals and outcomes will be further discussed.

Victorian Curriculum 7-10

Our curriculum document outlines the strands, sub-strands and specific sequences of linked content descriptors within the learning areas and capabilities we offer. The document details the scope of the curriculum we are well equipped to deliver to a high level.

Please note, the content descriptors identified will be the areas of the Victorian Curriculum we will explicitly teach and assess.

VCE

We support schools to deliver aspects of VCE Outdoor and Environmental Studies Units 1-4. We design individual programs to address the specific needs of your school and student group.

Learning programs offer students access to various natural environments to enrich and support the desired educational outcomes. This includes adventurous journeys, interactions with local experts, and opportunities for focused content delivery and reflection.

While we specialise in outdoor and environmental studies at VCE level, if your school would like to explore the delivery of other VCE subjects through outdoor learning, please get in touch to discuss your specific learning goals.

VCAL

We can support VCAL programs in addressing specific personal development skills. We can help students link theory to practice in a hands-on approach to the natural world and outdoor environment.

Please contact us to chat about the specific needs of your students and school.
