• The hub allows parents to research Independent schools across Victoria

The Age has launched a hub on its website containing sponsored content, that puts a spotlight on Victorian Independent schools to help parents find an education that best aligns with their child’s needs.

After a successful launch of NSW Independent Schools by The Sydney Morning Herald, the Victorian hub of Independent Schools 2021 launched on Monday. It is a hub that allows parents to research Independent schools across Victoria using a search function filtered by gender, geography, religious denomination and boarding. 

“We are thrilled to launch our Victorian Independent Schools Hub across The Age. Off the back of the success of our NSW Independent Schools Hub, launching in early June, we now have a total of 49 schools participating across NSW and Victoria. During extended periods of home schooling, education has been front and centre of many parents’ thoughts. Our must-use hub will guide parents through a sector that’s brimming with excellence and innovation,” said Jo Clasby, commercial director – publishing.

There are a wide range of priorities that will influence parents’ decision-making when it comes to choosing a school for their child. The education hub will contain custom pages on each school, showcasing the benefits of that education facility and what they have to offer, helping to make what can be a difficult decision clearer.

Specific co-curricular or extra-curricular opportunities can be a drawcard; also, whether the International Baccalaureate curriculum is available. An added dimension is whether a child is a candidate for enrolling in early-learning, junior school or high school.

Housing information about Independent schools in one place, the hub will contain sponsored content articles tailored for families considering sending their child to an independent school, and covering contemporary issues around the education sector. The hub will also contain enquiry forums that link directly to schools, videos and more allowing the users to learn more about schools.
