Our Lady of Mercy College is accelerating innovation skills for senior school students

Gain skills, earn university credits and create your dream career path.

We’re very excited to announce the partnership between Our Lady of Mercy College (OLMC) and HEX – “empowering young women to lead with courage and act justly, making a difference in whatever sphere of life they choose”.

With this partnership, HEX is welcoming 20+ senior students from OLMC to explore and enhance their innovative mindset and skillset that will get them ready for the exponentially changing future. It also contributes to OLMC students’ Multicredential portfolio, an innovative initiative designed to provide students with a flexible, self-directed approach to demonstrating their skills and competencies.

This collaboration will begin in 2024, starting at the end of term one with the HEX High Accelerator.

HEX High Accelerator is a six-week innovation program with industry mentors, university backing, digital delivery and engagement to achieve very ambitious outcomes for anyone who dares to dream big.

Director of Innovation and Partnerships, Matthew Esterman said “The team at HEX share our values at OLMC to empower students to become curious, limitless, and make a positive difference in the world. HEX High Accelerator is a fantastic opportunity for Year 11s  to explore their interests, learn new skills, and prepare for their future career in a world full of new technology and opportunities. We love the fact that each unit is designed to help them discover their strengths and passions, develop their creativity and problem-solving abilities, and understand the world of work.”

In the six-week online program, students will get to:

  1. Make better Higher Education choices – We'll give students the context, mentors, and skills to map out a personalised pathway and avoid degree-hopping.
  2. Accelerate to the workplace – We do this by making sure the content they are learning is 100% relevant, transferrable and can be applied today – not theory from a dusty textbook.
  3. Build a career portfolio – By the end of the program, students will have the experience, network and portfolio to unlock their next level, whatever that may be.

And many more that will get them ready for after-school graduation.
