Wheeler Education

Wheeler Education is here to bring the world to teens – and teens to the world.

Wheeler Education offers a range of events that prioritise the voices and experiences of young people – on and off the stage.

In our dynamic and interactive events, we hear from young people about the challenges facing them right now, equip them with the skills they need to participate in important public conversations and, most importantly, celebrate their passions, their ideas, and their stories.


Lunch Orders


In 2024, grab a bite with The Wheeler Centre as we serve up Lunch Orders: half hour conversations that can be livestreamed into any classroom or library, and accessed as a recording from the following week.

VCE 2024 Curriculum Resources


Presented in partnership with the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority, the Wheeler Centre presents a 2024 Curriculum Design video series for Victorian educators.

Featuring resources to help educators and their students with VCE studies in 2024, this series will promote deeper engagement with texts on List 2 and inspiration for meaningful and creative responses.

Access the video resources here.



Teen Gala


Our end of year gala brings together some of Victoria’s best and brightest young voices in an evening of storytelling, poetry, oration, comedy and more.  


Participating teens have the opportunity to take part in a series of free developmental workshops, designed by the Wheeler Centre to build onstage confidence, generate new writing and connect them with publication opportunities. 


Watch the 2023 Teen Gala below.  



As part of her involvement in the Teen Gala, in 2023 Zuva Goverwa became the first teen orator to speak at the Molly Hadfield Social Justice Oration, Darebin City Council’s annual tribute to women’s rights campaigner Molly Hadfield OAM. 




Teens Talk…


Professional development delivered by teens for educators, Teens Talk… reframes what it means to teach and to listen.
