Sash has led cross sector, collaborative teams through design led innovation processes to create inclusive access and care pathways, to reduce the impacts of social isolation, to empower communities to co-create opportunities and to rethink the way that social care is provided in regional Australia.
STEM Innovation Partnerships
A group of schools in Western Australia are working collaboratively to increase both achievement and engagement in STEM subjects – and to spread new practices across the state and beyond.
Innovation Unit Australia are collaborating with AISNSW to co-design a cross sectoral program that responds to the needs of learners, and create responsive teaching strategies that ignite their individual passions and optimise their strengths.
