There’s no one-size-fits-all approach in supporting youth engagement, but all young people have a spark. Something that inspires and drives them; and this can be the spark that helps them to find resilience, build a sense of self and self-worth to overcome diversity and find relevance in their education.
Working with parents
Queensland schools are committed to strong communication with parents and communities, to support all students to succeed. Parents play a significant role in supporting their child’s education, but it can be hard to know how to navigate education pathways and options and access relevant support. Building a strong value of learning and developing the motivation to take opportunities comes from within. By supporting their child’s spark and unique interests, parents can help their child build resilience, enhanced sense of self and build relevance and meaning in their education.
