GOAL! is an online kit bag of teaching resources designed to assist teachers in guiding students through engaging and integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) inquiry units.  Units and resources are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and The Department of Education Tasmania’s My Education career education framework.

GOAL! is designed by teachers, for teachers and is a bold and internationally significant approach to designing integrated STEAM teaching units that support teachers in guiding students through the 5 E’s inquiry process.  

GOAL! provides a set of comprehensive inquiry based teaching units that allow teachers the flexibility to tailor units and resources to suit their teaching style, students and learning context.  There are no prescriptive lesson plans.

Critically, GOAL! utilises the real-world career stories of sporting industry professionals from organisations such as North Melbourne Football Club to enhance student engagement, increase relevance, and to provide industry, occupation, training, qualification and labour market information.

In drawing on the wisdom of sporting industry professionals GOAL uncovers the skills and strategies required to navigate and build successful careers - identifying the opportunities and challenges they have experienced, and highlighting the importance of students developing these same skills in order to build their own unique career story.
