Mainstream school can be a difficult place for young people who may find themselves at risk of disengaging.
Flexible Learning Options (FLO) is a Department of Education and Child Development (DECD) initiative that’s designed to help students stay in school. It supports schools to help young people stay connected and engaged with their learning. AnglicareSA is a DECD preferred provider.
There are two components to the FLO service:
FLO Case Management provides young people with an opportunity to explore their talents, work through barriers to learning, and tailor a learning timetable to suit their goals.
FLO Learning Programs is available onsite (The Platform), offering a range of accredited and non-accredited and experiential learning opportunities.
Students are supported to complete their SACE (South Australian Certificate of Education), Vocational Education, and develop independent living skills, employability skills, connect with community and build resilience.
The service provide opportunities for meaningful engagement, practical life skills and accredited learning, intended to meet the living, learning and transition goals of the young person.
Curriculum is developed in collaboration with young people and stakeholders to ensure positive educational outcomes, help prepare young people to further their education opportunities, and help them gain sustainable employment.
We strongly support collaboration with complementary service providers and support agencies (formally or informally) that provide added value.
Our workshops offer a range of learning opportunities for young people, which include;
- Community projects
- Basic skill building
- Organisation and industry tours
- Guest/motivation speakers
