All areas of the Frankston Learning and Innovation Precinct (FLIP) have been designed around the student experience, with spaces that are adaptable, modular and suit the needs of today’s students.

Learning environments include replica hospital wards, trade sites and beauty salons that mirror industry conditions to give students the experience they need to leave TAFE job ready.

Located throughout the Precinct are modern, multi-use workstations and study zones which also extend to outdoor areas to complement the student experience. External study spaces and environmental design encourages student collaboration and peer-to-peer connection.

The outdoor design includes a range of Australian shrubs and ground coverings. Dressed with oversized potted plants, the expansive walkways that extend the perimeter of the Precinct are bordered by a vast lawn area and native trees.

Sustainability was also a key driver in the precinct’s design. The buildings have been fitted with EcoSoft carpets made from 400,000 recycled bottles which would have otherwise ended up in landfill.
