St Paul’s School Entrepreneurship Program

Want to learn how to be an entrepreneur? Often this sort of thing is left to chance, luck or sheer force of will. Why not avoid this and get started at school with some real-world problem solving, idea hacking and industry partnerships to help you build an entrepreneurial mindset and skill set whilst still at school

In this episode, we talk with Dr Paul Browning, Principal of St Paul’s School in Brisbane, Australia and Author of ‘Compelling Leadership and Principled.

In a rapidly changing world, we explore how St Paul’s has taken a proactive approach to teaching and learning and created an Entrepreneurial stream for their students to prepare them for an uncertain future.

From an in-depth educational review with input from leading educational minds such as Andy Hargraves & Pasi Sahlberg, to industry partnerships and a start-up fund, this school is on the leading edge of education today.

Australian Science & Mathematics School

No uniforms, open plan learning and a wonderful happy school environment! I only wish I could have gone to the Australian Science & Mathematics School. Specifically designed to cater for students with an interest in Maths and Science, the non-selective government school based at Flinders University in Adelaide is a remarkable example of the future facing experiential education at its best.

This impressive campus and program is for years 10-12 and all education starts with a major social, health, technical, or world-wide problem. The challenge is to find solutions to these problems through the effective practical application of Science and Maths.

With self-directed learning a key component of the school, this was a highlight of my year being able to visit and see such an effective teaching and learning environment in action.
