Flexible Learning, as the name suggests, offers diverse supported education for students in mainstream with a diagnosed disability, social, emotional and behavioural support needs.
Students accessing Flexible Learning have Education Adjustment Plans (EAP) or Student Support Plans (SSP), and typically are active clients of Schools Support Services Disability and Engagement.

Flexible Learning supports mainstream curriculum core subject and specialist subjects with intensive curriculum, through to 100% alternative curriculum; the Flexible Learning can create individual programs that include a range of these.
