What the service offers

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, providing Flexible Learning Programs, specialising in working with vulnerable young people and their families.

Our services provide opportunities for meaningful engagement, practical life skills and accredited learning, intended to meet the living, learning and transition goals of the young person.

We strongly support collaboration with complimentary service providers and support agencies (formally or informally) that provide added value.

Our Flexible Learning Programs offer alternative education options during school terms for young people. The curriculum is structured and based on the needs of young people and includes accredited learning e.g. Foundation Skills Cert I & II, life skills, experiential Learning and SACE Curriculum subjects.

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.

  • Community Projects
  • Basic Skill Building
