X-tend 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 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 X-tend 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.
