Teacher - Inala Flexible Learning Centre

Youth + National

 

Youth+ is an initiative of Edmund Rice Education Australia. Youth+ services including Flexible Learning Centres (FLCs) offer a full-time and multiyear secondary education and social inclusion program for young people who are disenfranchised from mainstream structures. Young people may express a broad range of complex education and social needs and the Youth+ services respond with a variety of flexible and innovative teaching and learning practices including vocational planning.

 

Youth + services provide young people with a varied and holistic set of learning experiences supporting them to identify and pursue an individual transition to adulthood, employment, further education and training and social connectedness.

 

Young people include indigenous and non-indigenous young people who are disengaged from mainstream education for a range of reasons and may include:

- Young people who have had contact with the juvenile justice system;
- Young people in the care of the Department of Child Safety;
- Young people with a history of trauma;
- Young people with a history of extended periods of unexplained absences from school
- Young people who are highly mobile;
- Young people who may have mental health and wellbeing concerns
- Young people who have been excluded or repeatedly suspended from school;
- Young people who are school refusers
- Young people who are homeless;
