Abstract

This document reports on research which was commissioned to explore the outcomes of the Glendyne Education and Training Centre. Major Key Stakeholders were approached and participated in the research. Literature in this field was reviewed showing paucity in research into this particular aspect of alternative secondary education. There are approximately 80 students currently enrolled at the Glendyne Education and Training Centre offering an alternative student-centred approach to learning for at-risk students in the region. Several decades ago, non graduating year 11 high school students could obtain jobs, join the military but today they are much more likely to be unemployed, involved in crime or imprisoned (Jeffries et al 2004 p. 64). Today at-risk youth often drop out of school or are excluded from mainstream high schools either for behavioural/learning disability reasons or to seek financial support as a result of family structures, support or opportunities (Jeffries (et al 2004). The aims of this study were to evaluate the 'Glendyne educational model as implemented by the Glendyne Education and Training Centre (hereafter referred to as Glendyne) as an alternative model of secondary education for 'at risk adolescents'. Glendyne aims to address this with their mission of; removing barriers to education and to nurture the intellectual, physical, social emotional and spiritual development of young men and women.
