About Us

Insight Education Centre for the Blind and Vision Impaired, located in Berwick, is a unique and dynamic organisation that combines the best of two very different worlds – on one side, this organisation is a shining example of world’s best practice education in the disability sector – on the other side, this organisation has an administration and corporate persona that would parallel the most dynamic “start-up” organisation.

Insight is dedicated to ensuring that blind and vision impaired children have the best opportunity possible to reach adulthood having achieved independence, which includes a job, an income and life options.

Insight was established in 2009 and has a purpose-built school situated on the Monash University campus in Berwick. Insight also has 3 fully-fitted mobile classrooms, a fleet of buses, 2 satellite units planned for mainstream schools, and a low-cost education and business model that can be easily replicated throughout the country. In addition, it has developed a world-class educational model that includes standard academic subjects taught in accessible ways, as well as a suite of skills that blind or vision impaired children need to learn in order to live an independent life.
