More information

The SEED Program has a focus on building vocational skills to help students successfully reach their future education and employment goals.

Students attend FLC one day per week and can enjoy small class sizes, additional educational support and independence through appropriate free dress and the opportunity to purchase food and drink from local stores during their break times.

Students develop skills around respect and socialisation, as they share the FLC facilities with students attending other classes on the same day.
Our programs are supported by an experienced Wellbeing Team.

The Early Intervention & Re-Engagement programs were established to meet the needs of students in the early years of secondary school who are disengaged, at risk of disengagement or have low attendance rates at their mainstream school.

Encompassing a range of programs that are tailored to support students aged from 13 – 16 years of age, these programs aim to develop the student’s sense of self-worth, social wellbeing, build resilience and encourage engagement in a consistent and nurturing environment.

With a dedicated group of staff, the Early Intervention and Re-Engagement programs work to support students through their early high school years.
