Abstract

The experience of disadvantage by Australians involves a complex interaction of factors including poor physical or mental health, financial difficulties, unemployment, inadequate housing, and refugee status. Many Australians experience social exclusion as a result of disadvantage, including limited access to education. The Clemente Toowoomba programme is a community-based enabling pathways programme for Australians experiencing social exclusion and multiple disadvantage. This chapter explores the impact of the Clemente Toowoomba programme on students’ pathways to further education and employment. The current chapter supports the efficacy of a university-community partnership model in supporting and creating pathways to education for marginalised people in community.
