Gippsland Access and Participation (GAP)
Beyond the barrier of distance faced by those in regional and rural areas, these challenges also include declining numbers of students studying maths and science subjects at secondary school.
The GAP project focuses on two main areas:
Connecting teachers in regional and remote areas
Recognising the difficulties teachers in regional and rural areas often face, we support maths and science teachers in isolated areas of Gippsland with local networking and professional development activities.
Addressing the decline in maths and science
By making learning fun, interesting and engaging, the GAP project is working to reverse the decline in the numbers of students studying maths and science at secondary school in Gippsland.
