Access Yea Community Education Program

The Access Yea Community Education Program (AYCE) is an innovative [http://www.theage.com.au/news/education-news/home-sweet-school/2006/03/04/1141191856957.html?page=fullpage#contentSwap2 "Home sweet school"] , Lisa Mitchell, The Age, March 6, 2006] high school educational program in Victoria, Australia that is designed to help school leavers and other students who do not fit into the regular school system.

The program

Established in 1999, this is a state-wide program that operates from eight centres across Victoria. It is managed by Yea High School, Yea, under the direction of program manager Annette Scales, but operates completely separate from the school. [ [http://www.yeahs.vic.edu.au/home/ayce/index.htm "Welcome to Yea High School's AYCE Program"] , Access Yea Community Education Program, "accessed 15 January 2008"] The program is state government-funded.

Each student is given an individual program. Some might combine Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) work with Technical and Further Education courses, or year 10 subjects with VCE subjects. The key is flexibility.

Parents and students are required to sign a contract with the school stipulating the obligations of each party.

Recognition

The program was cited as an example of best practice in open learning programs in a research report, prepared for the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, in February 2001.

On 12 October 2004 Seymour Hardman praised the program in the Victorian Legislative Assembly. He had visited AYCE with Lynne Kosky, Minister for Education, on 8 October.
