High impact schools program with at risk youth
As a social enterprise, Job Futures member MTC Australia applies commercial strategies to enable the reinvestment of their surplus into services such as Warakirri College.
The NSW Government recognises a registration category known as "Prescribed Non-Government Schools" which serve the same purpose as Special Schools but are privately operated. Warakirri Col-lege is assessed in this way.
The College caters for students aged 16 to 19 who present with social/emotional impairment and wish to enroll in a Board of Studies Year 10 Program and Higher School Certificate Program. The College offers a unique perspective to learning and teaching and offers educational sup-port, vocational studies and work preparation activities, and is fully funded by Job Futures member MTC Australia which ensures that no students pay fees.
More than 80% of Warakirri's students express their intention upon exit to either go on to employment or further education. This is a testament to the power and impact Warakirri has to positively impact lives. In their individual cases, it is hard to quantify where these young people would be without the support from Warakirri College. However, based on data collected by MTC it is likely that the majority would either be struggling in mainstream education or not participating in any form of education.
