Secondary Learning Centre
It is our aim to ensure that every student, every day achieves success in their learning and continues to grow and develop in their personal life.
The learning programs are tailored to deliver and prepare each student to move through the school having the appropriate technology skills, confidence and self-belief to enable them to thrive in their post school option placement.
Increased emphasis is given to problem solving, work experience and community based programs to prepare students to be travel and work educated and transition to a post school option.
The students engage in the Victorian Curriculum through thematic units of work that support students to explore, create, imagine and problem solve using technology and applied learning opportunities.
Students are encouraged to develop their academic skills, be autonomous and independent in their work and be able to collaborate with their peers.
All Secondary Learning Centre students are involved in the creation of a Career Action Plan. (CAP)
The CAP plan is designed to develop viable pathways for students through enabling them to construct their plan along with the actions they will need to complete, to achieve post school option placements.
The staff, are highly committed and have extensive experience in working with additional needs students to deliver improved learning outcomes in a structured and caring environment.
Student self-management of their learning and themselves and when working with others in the broader community is given a high priority. It is this self-management and social awareness that can make a difference in opening up opportunities on exiting school.
