The FLIQ (Flexible learning initiatives Queensland) program caters for secondary school age students who are disengaged from mainstream schooling.
The program has been designed specifically to work in partnership with community based organisations to provide these students with an educational opportunity that will improve their employment chances, lead them to further educational pathways and/or enable them to cope better with the literacy and numeracy demands of our society.
While the main educational focus of the program is on providing students with core literacy and numeracy skills and qualifications, the students will also have access to the full scope of subjects and courses offered by our school (e.g. VET courses and authority subjects).
