Flexible Learning Options (FLO) is a Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) enrolment strategy that promotes a more flexible approach for supporting successful engagement of young people (year 6 to age 19) most at risk of disengaging with learning.
FLO addresses each young person’s engagement in living and learning through personalised case management and/or engagement in a local ICAN FLO student learning program, whilst providing them with opportunities to engage in meaningful learning that leads to reengagement with school, further training or employment.
The FLO enrolment strategy provides schools and the wider community with some flexible per capita enrolment funding to support young people. This resource allows BLNF to provide case management services to students for 52 weeks of the year – something that schools rarely have the time or personnel to do.
