Welcome to Big Picture Education Australia

 

Big Picture Education Australia is a not-for-profit network of educators implementing a distinctive design for schools in a range of different community settings

Our purpose is to influence vital changes in education.

Our motivation is that too many of our young people are not achieving their potential. Many are not engaged in school learning and some do not complete school.

BPEA is supported by philanthropy, government, project partnerships, network membership and payment for services.

One student at a time, in a community of learners.
