FLO has helped young people who are experiencing things like:

  • anxiety and depression
  • learning difficulties
  • social and behavioural problems
  • bullying
  • homelessness
  • family difficulties
  • pregnancy
  • drug problems.

If you’re looking for a way to get your learning back on track, FLO might be able to help with things like:

  • improving reading, writing and maths skills
  • getting your SACE
  • gaining the skills to go onto further study or to get a job
  • getting relationship advice to get along better with family and friends
  • solving money problems and finding housing
  • making good life choices
  • feeling healthy and happy
  • planning for the future.

As a FLO student you will get:

  • a qualified Case Manager assigned (who is not a teacher) to help address wellbeing issues, as well as planning for learning options
  • a Flexible Learning and Transition Portfolio, which makes use of learning spaces both on the school site and in the wider community.

FLO students and their parents work with a School Coordinator and Case Manager to identify strengths, special interests and areas where the student needs support. This information is used to develop a Flexible Learning & Transition Portfolio that can lead to:

  • learning options outside school (including the NESPN CLC)
  • access to subjects of specific interest
  • support from other agencies - eg youth and community services
  • further education, training and apprenticeships
  • employment opportunities.

As a FLO and/or NESPN CLC student, the young person receives a personalised timetable and pathway which targets his or her learning and personal goals. We understand that everyone's journey is different and don't always happen at the same time! Pathways can be modified to suit the needs and readiness of the student.  

What is Flexible Learning Options (FLO)?

FLO can help if a student is having trouble staying at school. It supports schools and the wider community support as they help young people engage with their learning. It is available to SA government schools in all areas of the state.
