Youth Education and Training

We help young people get their learning back on track with our wide range of Youth, Education & Training Services.

For more information, call (08) 8209 5000 or email yets@baptistcaresa.org.au

Flexible Learning Options

Do you know a young person who is struggling with their studies? Do they need some help getting back on track?  We can help.

We offer a range of Flexible Learning Options (FLO)   so that students can achieve their SACE while learning in a flexible environment.

 

Outreach

We practice across a variety of Adelaide regions and use an assertive outreach model to connect with young people in a space where they feel safe and build on positive connections for independence. 

Our team of more than 25 Case Managers work from a relational trauma informed practice, supporting young people to develop independence and engage in learning.

We conduct home visits and welfare checks regularly to support young people to transition back into education settings.

Our experienced Case Managers can link young people with a range of community services to address barriers to education.

 

Learning Centres

Our team based at the Community Learning Centre work with teaching staff to support and enhance a young person’s learning experience by addressing their wellbeing and transition.

 

School based

We have a team based at various sites working alongside the school system to provide mentoring and case management to help students complete their education.

We do this by advocating for young people in the school setting and fostering positive relationships with peers and stakeholders.

We provide:

  • In class support
  • Mentoring
  • Parent engagement
  • Conflict resolution
  • Links to community services to address barriers to education

 

Positive and collaborative family engagement

Our team engage parents in all aspects of a young person’s learning pathway and keep them informed through phone calls, reports and celebration activities.

 

Culturally appropriate practice

Our Case Managers are trained in restorative practice and operate in a culturally appropriate setting, working alongside the team from our ‘Deadly Pathways’ program – a mentoring and engagement program for young people with an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background.

Here’s what one of our FLO participant’s thinks about the program:

“I started the FLO program almost 5 years ago and I can say I would not be the man I am today without the help of Baptist Care and to wonderful teachers at the [Community Learning Centre] CLC… whilst in a mainstream high school you make friends with the other students and teachers, in the CLC and FLO you make family.” Read more
