Workplace Learning
Particular focus of this program is given to researching post-school options and undertaking work experience. Much practice is put into developing skills in creating and maintaining effective relationships in the workplace, self-management and behaviour regulation in the workplace, enhancing performance skills, effective communication and developing an awareness of Workplace Health and Safety.

Enrolment Procedures
Our Centre will be operational from 2017, with the aim of having a purpose-built building sometime around 2019.
Our unit will cater for around 12 students with the initial rollout catering for 6-7 students.
Students from Year 6 onwards, who meet the criteria, can be enrolled in the Centre. The enrolment will include the standard King’s procedures but will also involve two additional interviews and questionnaires. This is to ensure that the purpose of the Centre can best meet the needs of your child.

Vision
At King’s we acknowledge that God creates every child and each child deserves quality education, provided in a safe and stimulating environment.
We are committed to delivering programs that maximise the educational, academic, social, physical, vocational and spiritual wellbeing of students; including those with significant levels of disability.
The King’s Learning Support Centre (KLSC) will be a Special Education Facility, which will ensure that enrolled students, meeting the criteria, will be able to access appropriate learning programs that meet their needs and the requirements of the Australian Curriculum.
