Modern Learning Environment

The majority of school buildings were built between1950 and the 70s. Since then, teaching practice and student learning needs have changed significantly. New technologies and building materials allow for new, vibrant and well connected learning spaces. All students deserve to be taught in these new modern learning environments, and benefit from new teaching methods.

The Modern Learning Environment (MLE) assessment process was introduced in 2010 as part of the changes to the 10 Year Property Plan (10YPP) process and Five Year Agreement (5YA) funding.

The changes to 5YA funding aim to support government’s three priorities for well-managed school property.
