Creating opportunities for children and young people to thrive in education, work and life.
The North Central Principal’s Network Flexible Learning Options (FLO) program is primarily designed for students between 15 and 19 year of age to develop skills that will enhance their capacity to re-engage with education and training opportunities and to support the development of employability skills.
The program supports students who may not be currently engaged in school or experiencing challenges to maintain school engagement to;
make positive choices
view themselves as learners
participate meaningfully in community
gain support and connections with peers
develop self-reliance and build on skills that engage and support them for future learning and employment opportunities .
The NCLLEN houses the FLO Coordinators and offers the program much needed financial support enabling a breadth of transport options for students to access the program.
The Buloke Loddon L2P program is another important part of the FLO program working to support many participants to gain their Learner Driver Permit, improving access to the program itself and future employment and training opportunities in rural communities with no public transport options.
The FLO program is managed by Charlton College, working closely with schools across the region and is available to students living in Buloke, Northern Grampians (St Arnaud only) and Loddon Shires.
Students in the program are provided with individual learning plans, accredited learning opportunities, pathways planning and access to health and well-being support.
The FLO program engages young people in a holistic manner and wherever possible works to ensure families and carers are part of the process of supporting young people in their learning and training.
