XTend is a specialist education program for high risk and high needs young people (aged 12-17 years) disengaged or at risk of disengaging from education. This includes those involved with child protection and/or mental health services.

Based at our Specialist School in Geelong, we work closely with young people to develop individual goals that inform an engaging and meaningful educational curriculum that also:

  • provides opportunity for learning success
  • promotes social and emotional learning
  • develops and enhances critical life-skills.

The service operates as a small group and can provide intensive outreach where required. We also work with students to meet assessment and reporting requirements and refer individuals to any internal and/or external support services they may need.

How to access this service

The XTend Program is only available through referral and priority is given to young people in out of home care. Please enquire to obtain referral and enrolment forms.
