Transition Pathways

A transition pathway, is a student’s journey from school to life after school (post - school). A successful transition prepares the student for the ‘outside’ world and links the student, and family, with adequate and appropriate services and supports to ensure a safe and satisfying future. 

At year 10, or equivalent, the teacher sets down the student, and family, dreams and vision for the future, in the SET (Senior Education and Training) Plan. The SET Plan provides the background and direction for the senior phase of schooling and the student’s transition pathway. 

At Beenleigh Special School, during years 11 and 12, students are gradually and strategically immersed in the community, to explore options, develop new relationships, build confidence and find what suits them best. Students with the interest and capacity to work – be it supported employment, open employment or volunteer work, are directed towards an ‘Employment Pathway’. Where work is not a viable option, a ‘Recreational Pathway’ is available. Some students will travel both pathways. 

Beenleigh Special School has built a reputation for successful transition processes and outcomes for students. This success is built on strong community partnerships, support networks and the types of relationships that provide abundant opportunities and variety for students. The school’s determination to secure quality outcomes for students, is based on the belief that within disability lies ability!
