Making Alternatives Possible (MAP) Program

2019 Expressions of Interest are now open!

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

MAP, run in both Western Melbourne and Eastern Melbourne, is a 10-week program designed to engage young people aged 17-19 who are interested in exploring alternate education pathways. The program 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 will provide a more supportive and individualised approach to learning.

MAP aims to inspire participants to:

  • Identify education and employment pathways
  • Set goals for the future
  • Develop employability skills

Free breakfast is available each morning.

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.
