Flexible Learning Options are programs and initiatives, both outside school and in schools, designed to meet the diversity of needs for young people to be actively and positively engaged with their learning, achieving better life and learning outcomes and building pathways to further learning beyond school.
The information within our Flexible Learning Options database is aimed at young people (and their parents, youth workers and teachers) to help them find a program that suits them – and at programs, so that they can learn about and from each other. Although there is much variety, what the programs listed in the database have in common is that:
- young people can attend by choice,
- they offer general education at secondary school level, enabling young people to achieve recognised credentials,
- they aim to adapt the offer of education to suit the young people who attend,
- Their work is grounded in social justice, giving priority to supporting young people who have been marginalised in education and/or society.
Please note: The information on the database is either publicly available or has been submitted by the program provider. We do our best to keep the database accurate, but it may turn out that some information is out of date. If you have any questions regarding a program, it is best to contact the provider directly.
