FLEXIBLE LEARNING

Flexible Learning is a strategy used to provide options for students at risk, who require individualised programs to ensure every success in their learning. Students have access to flexible spaces, which offer a number of classes with specialised teacher and SSO support.

When all student intervention strategies in the school have been exhausted, it is possible for a student to be FLO enrolled and assigned a case manager. Flexible Learning Options (FLO) is a Department for Education enrolment strategy. It allows for a flexible approach to supporting young people most at risk of disengaging from school.

A FLO enrolment supports the delivery of:

  • Individualised learning pathways based on the students own educational and employment goals
  • The support of a case manager for the entirety of the FLO enrolment
  • Access to community based learning centres where available and applicable
  • Support for employment of specific learning achievements.

A FLO student enrolment, managed by the school in partnership with community services, has been shown to successfully lead to meaningful learning and employment pathway.

This type of enrolment strategy for at-risk students has been shown to offer a far greater chance of keeping the student connected to a learning pathway.
The FLO student is:

  • Provided with a meaningful, accredited learning and planned pathway to further education, training and employment
  • Encouraged to develop a relationship with the school
  • Engaged in learning
  • Given access to those community services that are most needed to successfully address a learning barrier through their Flexible Learning and Transition Portfolio (FLTP).
