The Program:

The Navigator Program is a targeted education support service whereby case managers work with young people, their families, and schools, to enable them to achieve their educational goals. It is a support service rather than a teaching service.

The young person is assigned a case manager and they work together in a place that suits the young person – at home, at school or at a café.

Case managers help to identify and utilise the young person’s strengths and skills to make school a more positive experience.

They provide coaching and mentoring to enhance the young person’s wellbeing and develop resilience, self-efficacy, and social skills.

Case managers work with the young person, their family, carers, and school to reduce or remove the barriers that prohibit school attendance.

Once the young person is back attending school, they are monitored to ensure sustained engagement.
