Southern Downs Flexible Learning Hub
The Hub is an accredited Special Assistance School for students in Years 7 to 12 who have disengaged from mainstream schooling and require a supportive and flexible learning environment.
Some of these students successfully re-engage in mainstream education via the Vocational Education and Training program run on Slade Campus.
Our view of education is to partner with parents to help students see their gifting's, assist them develop existing talents, and experience new possibilities in their journey to becoming a valued member of the community.
The Flexible Learning Hub is designed to be just what its name says – flexible. Some students attend the Hub for a number of years while others are supported for a shorter time.
All senior students can choose to enroll in the QCAA registered Year 11 & 12 subjects and choose certificate courses to earn points towards a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
Many students move into further studies or gain employment.
Our aim is always to lead students to live a positive and productive life.
Throughout all aspects of the curriculum are strong engagement-based incentives and wider social learning to assist students to interact well with project teams and the world around them.
Year 7 to 9
Our focus is to assist students in re-engaging with mainstream curriculum (ACARA) and to develop a positive and healthy citizen through explicit intervention in literacy & numeracy, well-being and life skills.
Year 10 to 12
Our goal is to connect these students with industry and the broader community so they can successfully enter the workplace and adult life through training, apprenticeships, work experience, life-skills and well-being programs as a productive member of society.
We work closely with district support and health professionals, referring students where specialised help is needed with a view to accelerating their personal recovery and growth. With trained specialist staff we believe that we can assist your child to successfully re-engage with their education and training.
We reference Disability Standards for Education 2005 and the Special Assistance School (SAS) Framework to guide us catering for SAS students.
