We believe that all students can learn and would like to be attending school. Montague School provides a safe and supportive environment for students aged 15 to 19 who have a mild intellectual disability or who have disengaged or not experienced success in mainstream school. Our vision is for all students to be happy and successful learners who are empowered to develop their potential and supported to achieve a successful adult pathway.
The aims of the learning programs are to equip students with the educational knowledge, skills and abilities required, to obtain employment or to participate in further education and to provide students with the capacity to live as independent and contributing members of the community.
The school is committed to providing a pathway to post school life via successful completion of the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) at Foundation, Intermediate and Senior levels accompanied by Vocational Employment and Training (VET) courses run with the assistance of the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster, Kangan and Holmesglen TAFE.
Students also complete work experience or Structured Workplace Learning placements sourced with the assistance of the Local Learning and Employment Networks.
Each student has an Individualised Learning Plan produced with the student's input which ensures they are motivated and interested in their own learning and meeting VCAL outcomes in areas that they find personally engaging.
