“The BHP Pilbara Education Partnership is the largest corporate and government partnership undertaken in regional Western Australia and has seen BHP invest approximately $30 million in education since 2010. The Partnership was established in 2005 to enhance education services and improve education outcomes in public schools within Newman, Port Hedland and surrounding areas within the Shire of East Pilbara and Town of Port Hedland.
A new iteration of the Partnership, 2021 to 2023 was recently endorsed with a focus on pathways planning for students, preparing young people for life beyond school by building skills and capabilities for employment, further training or study.
With support of training providers and industry partners, the Partnership provides Hedland Senior High School students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes through a planned program of learning experiences to assist young people to make informed decisions about their future. By increasing their understanding of career pathways and providing targeted support, they will have increased opportunity to engage in the new world of work, training or study, ensuring a successful future.
Within the Pathways focus area there are four key directions:
1. Year 7 to 12 Aspiration, Engagement and Participation
2. Innovative School based Training Opportunities
3. Business and Industry Collaboration
4. ATAR Achievement Support
Hedland Senior High School’s Success Program provides students with access to more targeted curriculum and pathways planning, creating opportunities for students to engage in alternative pathways that will lead to successful post-school destinations, with preparations through skill-building in lower school and a workplace readiness focus in upper school.
LOWER SCHOOL SUCCESS PROGRAM
The Lower School Success Program caters for students in Years 7 to 9, with a literacy and numeracy focus, and preparation through skill-building.
SENIOR SCHOOL SUCCESS PROGRAM
The Senior School Success Program caters for students in Years 10 to 12, with a focus on completing certified training and workplace readiness.
Milli Maya is an alternative learning pathway for students requiring wrap-around support in order to successfully engage in learning through an alternative curriculum.
The Welcome Centre caters for students across all year groups with special educational needs.
