This program ensures that students meet the mandatory NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) requirements, while also providing them with the flexibility to follow their own program of study and ensuring they meet outcomes for future employment requirements.

Throughout the program, students may be given the chance to participate in the school community through assemblies, liturgies and sport carnivals. They are also given opportunities to strengthen their living and independence skills.

Each student’s selected syllabus outcomes and content are identified through the collaborative curriculum planning process, with the Key Learning Areas (KLAs) that follow an integrated unit approach.
