The Hester Hornbrook Academy (HHA) provides flexible education and learning options, including VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) and VETiS (Vocational Education and Training in Schools). Recognising that mainstream education is not suitable for all young people, our programs are driven by the personal pursuits of students and integrate wellbeing and life skills approaches. Teachers and Youth workers work together to support students. We have classes and outreach learning options for students who are young parents, out of home care, experiencing homelessness, or who have been disengaged from mainstream education.
Our Healing Oriented Framework guides us in our trauma informed knowledge to enhance trauma responsiveness across all programs and deepens the capacity of teams and services in complex environments to provide healing oriented care.
