Read on to learn more about the learning culture at the Jonal Campus. Learn how students are taught about more than just how to pass exams.
Learning at the Jonal Campus
At the Jonal Drive Campus, each student has their own tailored education plan. All students participate in programs to improve their general literacy and numeracy skills. Each course is tailored to ensure student participation and engagement. This helps ensure that every student progresses towards their learning goals.
Younger students at the Jonal Campus study the Australian Curriculum. All children and young people are actively involved in the Child Protection Curriculum.
Learning plans can be changed to accommodate student needs and maintain a curriculum that is enriching and engaging. This helps to foster a love for learning that they will remember throughout their lives.

The Youth Education Centre Difference
At the Youth Education Centre, we see learning differently. Each student has their own tailormade learning plan. This is tailored to their strengths and focussed around improving the student’s problem areas.
At the Jonal Training Centre, students will receive excellence in education and care. This teaches them everything they need to re-enter the community and take the next step in their career. The YEC places our values of respect, responsibility, and academic excellence at the forefront of everything we do. We strive to ensure that our students follow our example.
