The Links to Learning program supports at-risk students in Years 6–11 to re-engage with school and reach their potential. The program is aimed at students who are facing barriers to participation in mainstream education and supports them to improve their engagement with learning.
Through personalised support and innovative activities, the program empowers students to achieve their goals and improve their education and employment prospects.
Who is it For?
To participate in Links to Learning, students need to be:
- In Years 6–11
- Identified by their school as being:
- At risk of disengaging from learning
- And/or at risk of leaving school early
Students can be referred to the program by the school’s Learning and Support Team but participation is voluntary.
How it Works
Links to Learning is delivered within schools each Semester by MTC Australia Youth Advisors. Students attend group workshop sessions with fellow participants to re-engage with group learning, learn life skills and build social confidence.
Group sessions allow students to learn in a supportive environment and discuss real-life issues covering a wide range of topics whilst also building knowledge and strategies to overcome barriers that they identify.
Students also participate in individual support sessions with a dedicated Youth Advisor to discuss barriers they are facing, identify their goals and create a plan to achieve them.
