A new world of work needs a new way of learning
Education is changing and Wintec is changing with it, so our students can find success in a world that’s moving faster than ever before. At Wintec we nurture and guide individual students as part of a community so they are confident and equipped to navigate their way in the future world of new jobs and ways of working.
To do this, we must be responsive, celebrate and encourage connectivity, creativity and collaboration, and be open to new ways of doing things. This short video The Future is Now (3 mins) tells our story: The future is now LINK
