One of which is the Big Picture.

When students participate in Big Picture learning they build a portfolio of work for their HSC focused on career outcomes.

These portfolios are used to gain access to university degrees, traineeships and more.

Jack Brooker is 17 years old and is currently completing Year 12 at Tomaree High School.

As a part of his Big Picture Project Jack is completing a Certificate III in Screen and Media at TAFE.

Jack has an interest in acting, cinematography and journalism.

Jack told News Of The Area, “I’m a Hardworking person who enjoys what I do.

“My strengths include my creativity and my knowledge in Digital Technology.

“I’ve been interested in the Media Business ever since I was young. I was one of the protagonists in my friends movie he made for his YouTube channel.

Jack has been a Big Picture student for the last 2 years and thoroughly enjoy this style of learning independently and through his passions.

“I would love to gain a mentorship in my interest area to help increase my chances of further employment in the creative and filming industries,” he said.

Jack has gained valuable experience, skills and knowledge also through the TAFE course.

He plans to complete the Diploma in Screen and Media once I have finished my HSC this year.

Stephen Jennings of Tomaree High School said, “Allowing students to build a portfolio of their work rather than study various subjects works better for some students, offering different learning programs helps us ensure all students have the best opportunities.”
