Are you passionate about alternative education and determined to see change for young people with complex educational needs? Do you have experience in overseeing and implementing school-wide curriculum designed to meet the individual needs of students?
The Berry Street School in the Gippsland Region caters for young people primarily aged 12 to 18 years who have become disengaged from mainstream education.
