Abstract A collaborative partnership between Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University and industry partner SAGE Didactic has been developed. This partnership is born for the shared commitment to Advancing the technical skills of today's and tomorrow's workforce. This ambitious commitment engages with students in the early stages of high school with the view to exciting them about the critical role engineering trades, paraprofessional, professional and postgraduates contribute to society. To enable early student excitement to be qualified and nurtured, the collaborative partnership develops a full set of laboratory systems and support courseware that provides a robust educational experience to students, school teachers, trade and professional participants. The expected outcomes are an increased interest in the aforesaid study areas, a reduction in the drop out rate in the first and second years of higher education and progressively an expansion in the skills a graduate will present.
