Remote schools pathway grant

The remote schools pathway grant helps remote schools develop work experience and enterprise programs for students with disability in preparation for employment and community participation when they leave school.

Go to the students with disability page for more about transition from school planning, timelines and documentation.

Criteria for funding

The activities funded are dependent on the available resources, skill sets and aspirations within the community and must:

  • have an emphasis on explicit teaching and modeling of skills that prepare students with a disability for participation in community projects and initiatives 
  • contribute to positive student outcomes against the Australian Curriculum general capabilities and key learning areas including English and society and environment (SOSE) or senior years programs.
  • foster strong links with the broader community, encouraging skills development in areas that provide realistic pathways as students move from school to adult life
  • have employment skills embedded within the program.

All students involved in the project must have a current individual transition plan.
