Making Alternatives Possible (MAP) Program


Delivered by IMVC, the MAP Program is designed for young adults who are seeking an alternative learning environment to mainstream schooling.

MAP aims to inspire students to explore what they want to achieve in the future, acquiring essential skills, knowledge, and competencies, in preparation for further education, training or employment.

Students participate in Career and Industry exploration activities beyond the classroom. Small group settings also provide a more supportive and individualised approach to learning.

Course Structure
The MAP Program provides a solid, yet flexible structure through which young adults can develop core skills in literacy, numeracy, as well as “real world” tasks. This integrated curriculum will engage students in themed projects, career and transition workshops and pathways planning.

As part of their training, students will also have the opportunity to complete Barista Training and the RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) Certificate. Access to individual counselling will also be provided.

Eligibility Criteria
In order to be considered for the MAP Program, the young person must:

  • Be 15-18 years old and demonstrate a willingness to address personal issues which are functioning as barriers to engagement with learning
  • Be an Australian or New Zealand Citizen, or have Permanent Residency
  • Be willing to undertake an interview with the MAP Coordinator
  • Be willing to work cooperatively with students and staff during MAP
