Collaboration in the AE Sector
Arthur Sutherland and Karen Paul (Alternative Education, Christchurch)
Alternative Education is a Ministry of Education funded programme that enables the re-engagement of young people aged 13-16, who for whatever reason have disengaged from mainstream schooling. In Christchurch Cashmere High School is the managing school and has contracted a number of community groups and tertiary education institutions as the providers of Alternative Education. The presentation will focus on the nature of those contracts and the support from the wider community including the nurses in schools, Youth Service, industry training organisations and attendance service.
