Discuss the best pathways for yourself or your children with teachers and others who Discuss the best pathways for yourself or your children with teachers and others who understand the Victorian education system. TAFE is probably better for your child. There are many very good courses at TAFE for students who are 16, 17 or 18 and have missed out on a lot of schooling. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008 My child is 17 but has missed a lot of school. What do you suggest?

Be Realistic • Choose courses and pathways which will bring success. • Don’t waste Be Realistic • Choose courses and pathways which will bring success. • Don’t waste time with unrealistic pathways. If you do this, you or your child will only jump from one course of study to another and waste a lot of time. . • Listen to teachers and others who know the Victorian education system. They will give you good advice. Realistic Choices Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

The path of life is never straight for anyone. The best pathway in education The path of life is never straight for anyone. The best pathway in education is the one which starts from where YOU are NOW and leads you to somewhere BETTER. The best pathway for your child may be different from that of someone born in Australia. The best pathway for your child may also be different from the pathway of other members of your community. HOWEVER, the most important thing is reaching your destination successfully: and maybe the Winding Pathway will help you achieve this. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

Current Opportunities in Some of the Alternative Pathways for CALD Students Win Madigan - Current Opportunities in Some of the Alternative Pathways for CALD Students Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

Foundation (ESL) VCAL at Debney Park Secondary College (in Flemington) INFORMATION: - tailors VCAL Foundation (ESL) VCAL at Debney Park Secondary College (in Flemington) INFORMATION: - tailors VCAL courses to the needs of new arrivals with disrupted schooling CURRENT SITUATION: Only enrolling at the beginning of the year. Therefore, not available to students exiting at mid-year or end of terms one and three. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

Victoria University Youth. Transitions INFORMATION: Youth ESL Access Program for students from 16 to Victoria University Youth. Transitions INFORMATION: Youth ESL Access Program for students from 16 to 19. Foundation VCAL is offered in this program at the Nicholson Street Footscray Campus as well as Certificates 1, 2, 3 and 4 in ESL Access English, thus giving students pathways into other TAFE programs. CURRENT SITUATION: - Not enrolling students once Government Funding has been used. WELS and Brunswick ELC had 20 students to exit there at the start of term 3 this year. None were offered places. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

YAMEC (Young Adult Migrant Education Certificate) Part of NMIT Northern Metropolitan Institute of TAFE YAMEC (Young Adult Migrant Education Certificate) Part of NMIT Northern Metropolitan Institute of TAFE Information: - Offers Certificates 1, 2, 3&4 in English (ESL) as well as Foundation VCAL, YAMEC caters specifically for those with disrupted schooling or other new arrivals whose English needs to be brought up to speed so that they can access appropriate courses. CURRENT SITUATION: - Will take students at any time if places are available. For those of us in the West, it is a little far, but, at the moment just about the only suitable option. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

AMES Youth Programs INFORMATION; - Footscray, St Albans and Werribee all run Youth Programs AMES Youth Programs INFORMATION; - Footscray, St Albans and Werribee all run Youth Programs for students who need more support with their English. Students get assistance re future pathways while doing the program. CURRENT SITUATION; - AMES will enrol at any time if the student is eligible. Those on 457 visas, temporary long stay and some other visa categories are not eligible. If there is more than one youth class running, it tends to suit student needs better. It is also important to be aware that the students themselves do not always like this option, because they still feel they are in an adult environment. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

LLNP Language Literacy and Numeracy Program INFORMATION: - This program is now run by LLNP Language Literacy and Numeracy Program INFORMATION: - This program is now run by JPET (Job Placement, Employment and Training Program) and accessed through Cenrelink. Therefore, the student will need a Job Seeker ID. CURRENT SITUATION: - I don’t refer students here mainly because it seems a bit too close to the work force for them and they are not ready to access this at the moment. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

SPIRIT WEST SERVICES (Footscray) Information: - Offer VCAL and CEGA (Certificate in General Education SPIRIT WEST SERVICES (Footscray) Information: - Offer VCAL and CEGA (Certificate in General Education Attainment) for students struggling in mainstream settings. CURRENT SITUATION: - Spirit West Services do a lot of very good work with schools in the West. Their current education programs cater mainly for the disengaged. They do not have ESL students in their programs at the moment. However, Spirit West Services are forward looking and open in their thinking and it is worth trying to form partnerships with them in order to better meet the needs of ENGAGED CALD students. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

River Nile Learning Centre Footscray INFORMATION: - The River Nile Learning Centre is designed River Nile Learning Centre Footscray INFORMATION: - The River Nile Learning Centre is designed to provide an alternative bridging program for students from Sudan and the Horn of Africa who have experienced severely disrupted schooling. CURRENT SITUATION: - Currently River Nile is catering well for a group of young girls, many of whom have young children and cannot access other educational venues. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

TOTEM PROJECT Footscray The Totem program supports disconnected young people aged 15 – 19 TOTEM PROJECT Footscray The Totem program supports disconnected young people aged 15 – 19 to re-engage with education and training. The focus is on the young person’s individual learning needs, personal development and vocational aspirations. CURRENT SITUATION: - Currently enrolling for this semester and have a few places left. Although this course is suitable for one or two of our students who have ‘fallen through the net’ and are now disengaged, the majority of students I try to place and engaged and interested in becoming better educated. They simply need courses which are at THEIR level. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008

Finally If you are in a mainstream school with quite a few students from Finally If you are in a mainstream school with quite a few students from CALD backgrounds, is it possible to introduce a Foundation (ESL) VCAL course or CEGA course at Year 10? Many students really want the mainstream option, but can’t cope with the work requirements of Year 10 and VCE. With some of the alternatives drying up (e. g. Victoria University’s Youth Pathways) it would be good if Secondary Schools could offer alternatives to this very worthy group of students. Win Madigan - WELS - 2008
