Level 2
Number of Credits: up to 18

Entry RecommendationsStudents are encouraged to take this course if they are keen to learn in a work-like environment. Project 2X enables students to develop employability skills. Students are empowered to take ownership of their learning with guidance from the teacher-facilitator. Student success is related to how best they utilise the resources that are available to them and to overcome barriers that they encounter through the process of completing their project. 

Project 2X provides students with an opportunity to be independent learners who are encouraged to take learning risks. Students learn by using essential skills throughout the process of achieving their outcome. 

This course helps students develop essential skills such as being:

  • Effective self-managers and communicators
  • Flexible critical thinkers
  • Problem solvers
  • Responsible citizens
  • Collaborators

Course Outline: This is a Project Based Learning course in which students will embark upon a shared project. Students work collaboratively to co-construct an authentic learning pathway based on their interests and passions. Students draw on multiple curriculum areas and are encouraged to complete an approved project with at least one other student.  The focus for this course is to develop skills to work as a team.

Students will develop:

  • A project that – is a product, a service or an event
  • A project that – excites and interests them 
  • A project that – is community minded 
  • A presentation to the community at the end of the course 

Course Costs: Up to $100 for local field work trips and guest speakers
