Brief description Flexible Learning Options (FLOs) for young people who have disengaged from schooling are expected to assist in raising educational attainment, but evidence of their economic and social value to date has been anecdotal. This project gauges the value of FLOs across three Australian states and the Northern Territory with the development of an analytic tool that takes into account the complexity of young people’s lives together with their stories into an integrated analysis that provides rigorous evidence. The project develops a superior measurement of outcomes from educational interventions for wider use as well as specific findings to inform policy and practice about young people's access to education.
