Our FLO program supports the successful retention of young people who are identified at risk of disengaging from a mainstream learning program at school.
Based at Aldinga Beach, our program currently supports approximately 100 students who have multiple complexities in their lives. Each student has a qualified case manager to help address wellbeing issues which may include:
- anxiety and depression
- learning difficulties
- social and behavioural problems
- homelessness and transience
- family difficulties.
FLO students and their parents / caregivers work with school staff and case managers to identify strengths, special interests and areas where the student needs support. This information is used to develop a Flexible Learning and Transition Portfolio that can lead to:
- learning options outside school
- access to subjects of specific interest
- support from other agencies – eg youth and community services
- further education, training and apprenticeships
- employment opportunities
- additional learning and wellbeing support.
