What People say

“In a fast-growing school with a diverse range of learners, Target Learning classroom posters have been a game-changer. The combination of visual representation and concise information has helped me explain abstract and often complicated concepts to students with varied skill levels without them feeling overwhelmed. They’re also great visuals to brighten up your classroom!”

Alexis, Teacher - Loyola College, Melbourne.

"Target Learning is a website that has supported my teaching in Visual Communication Design. The resources are fantastic for both students and teachers alike! Ric Robert’s exam preparation seminar was also an invaluable experience to have with my Year 12s. Even in a remote setting, my students found the session extremely supportive for their exam preparation."

Kat, Teacher - Caroline Chisholm Catholic College, Melbourne.

Our story


Target Learning began as an on-line learning resource (previously known as helveticamediuma.com), specialising in VCE Visual Communication Design, Media and Studio Arts. From the first course in VCE VCD, resources and support for teachers and students grew. These include class-room posters, illustrating key concepts from Study Design Areas of Study and Cross Study Specifications and personalised VCE examination revision and teacher planning support, in-person and on-line seminars.

Launched in 2010, this on-line student and teacher support has been used by thousands of people in Victoria and around the world. Its author, Richard Roberts is a secondary school teacher and visual arts/ design author and consultant. He has a depth of experience with VCAA as visitation reviewer, examination assessor, author, study design expert panel member.
