Hands on Learning

Hands On Learning is an innovative education program that caters to the different ways young people learn.

Two teachers work collaboratively with small groups of cross-age students on authentic building projects that provide a platform for students to engage, grow confidence and achieve success at school.

Hands On Learning fosters strong, long term relationships that help young people develop the skills and abilities they need to succeed in work and life like collaboration, problem solving, communication, resilience and empathy.

How it works


One day, every week

Ten students, two teachers, one day out of the classroom every week



Girls and boys from different year levels are referred by wellbeing staff, year level co-ordinators and school leadership teams.



Teachers are employed directly by schools while Hands On Learning Australia provides support through quality assurance and ongoing training and development.
