    STRATEGIC PLAN 2011-2012
    Our vision: Our learners achieve more productive and fulfilling lives as a result of their Polytechnic education experience.
    Our mission: To provide learners with an applied education experience to gain the qualifications and skills they need to be productive in the workforce, continue with learning and contribute positively to the community.
    The Polytechnic provides education and training programs for students after year 10. Since it began operation in 2009, there has been considerable effort expended on developing Polytechnic learning focused on providing holistic education programs to young and mature-aged students alike, with programs and the appropriate support to ensure each student achieves their potential.
