Education Re-engagement

Education Re-Engagement

We strive to support young people to become the best people they can be: for themselves, their community and in their future career.

 

The Links to Learning program provides young people with various learning opportunities to help improve their education, employment and life skills, to manage themselves and their relationships with others, to develop a sense of purpose for their lives and broaden their aspirations for the future.

 

Links to Learning aims to support young people to:

  • Build self-esteem, confidence and resilience
  • Become active citizens, by building their connections with their community
  • Develop strategies to seek support for the barriers and issues they face
  • Plan and work towards achieving personal and learning goals
  • Re-engage and return successfully to full-time school at the completion of the program

 

Links to Learning is run as a small group program, for students who have been identified by their school as being at risk of disengaging from their learning, or of leaving school early, or needing extra support to successfully complete school.

 

It is delivered one day per week on-site at each participating school. Sessions include a variety of interactive, hands-on and practical activities; a community project where students work together on a group project, a number of excursions and visits from guest speakers from the local community.

The Links to Learning Program is funded by the NSW Government and administered by the NSW Department of Education.
