Learning Choices case studies
Learning Choices case studies
Effective organisations currently nowadays have their own distinctive ways of identifying the practises that keep young people connected. It has been observed that the organisations who do the most powerful work, do so by creating spaces that have arisen in direct response to the needs of local young people by prioritising what is important to them and by working on building capacities that meaningfully relate to their own lives and sense of identity.
These safe spaces encourage young people’s voices in decision-making and develop their sense of agency, skill and capacity.
In the following case studies you can delve deeper to explore the real work organisations are doing to keep young people connected to learning and to understand why some young people will thrive in a particular program, how programs develop to provide a range of learning options for every student, and just what the students themselves have to say about the way they learn.
