atEAST was established in April 1997 and is a consortium of leading schools in the Eastern Region of Melbourne offering VET and School based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs), who work together to increase the range of options for their senior students.
There are now nine government secondary schools – Croydon Community School, Doncaster Secondary College, East Doncaster Secondary College, Forest Hill College, Heathmont College, Monbulk College, Rowville Secondary College, Upwey High School, and Yarra Hills Secondary College.
These schools have a like minded desire amongst the leadership and staff of the schools to meet the diverse needs of each school’s student cohort. We believe that all students can succeed and that success will come in a variety of ways. The schools believe that to meet diverse student needs requires a broad range of curriculum options for students and the ability to access multiple pathways, something best achieved in co-operation with like-minded organisations.
The consortium is proud of its joint achievements that have been made in the delivery of School based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs) and the consortium is the single biggest provider of SBATs in Victoria.
