MAP – Making Alternatives Possible

MAP – Making Alternatives Possible

Every year, in every school there are students who, for one reason or another, become disenchanted with the whole routine of going to school. 

So what then? Let us help!

MAP (Making Alternatives Possible) is an 8-week course for people aged 17-24 who’ve left school and aren’t sure what to do next.   MAP offers a purposeful alternative to being at school in Term 4, and a proven way for young people to carefully explore what study and work options are out there for them.

Five reasons to sign up to MAP 

  • Better understand yourself and what you’d like to do next.
  • Learn about awesome alternative study options
  • Learn tips and tricks for nailing a job
  • Discover jobs you’ve never even heard of
  • Sharpen up your real-world life-skills

How will it work?

This is an 8-week course starting on Tuesday 5 October finishing on Thursday 25 November. (9.30 am to 3.30pm)

We have planned for blended course delivery.  

  • Tuesday   Relax at home with online learning.
  • Wed & Thursday  Get connected with new people with classroom learning
  • Friday (* or whenever)  Self-directed learning for you to do at home when it suits you. 

Don’t worry, if COVID-19 lockdowns are still in place and we can’t get together, this course has been designed to be flexible and can be delivered online.
