The FlexiLink program combines an online learning program with one to one or small group teaching. Students can choose to either complete work packages at a location of their choice or attend The Success Centre at alternate times to regular students. Students are able to work at their own pace and the learning is tailored to their needs and interests. Teaching staff at Coodanup College mark students’ work, provide feedback and conduct regular visits to students at their chosen study location.
The course is aimed at Year 11 and 12 students who may have had gaps in their education or been through a critical life event that has prevented them from accessing mainstream education. Coodanup College Success Centre / FlexiLink specialise in low literacy, disengaged students and has an open door policy for all young people who need help.
The FlexiLink program also has strong links with a number of local agencies that work with young people and facilitates access to a youth worker, counselling, medical services and Bridging the Gap.
