The Learning and Teaching Leader (LTL) is accountable for the provision of specialist curriculum advice and leadership of Design and Technology.  This includes responsibility for the development, delivery, promotion and quality of learning and teaching in the Design and Technology area within the College.

Immanuel’s teaching and learning programs focus on three core areas – Excellence in Academics, Innovative Teaching and Learning, and a Personalised Approach.  The learning principles – Creating, Connecting, Thinking, Understanding – define an approach to teaching and learning that is designed to enable students to flourish in a complex and rapidly changing environment.
