A senior secondary school experience unlike any other

At Y2IC we are all about what works for you.

  • We are small and safe
  • We are inclusive and nurturing
  • We take time to understand individual learning needs
  • We help with career conversations that guide you towards your pathway goal

What’s different about our alternative school approach

1. Getting to know you is our first priority

We are purposely small so we can take the time to get to know you.

This way we can tailor your learning by creating an Individual Pathway Plan to help you figure out who you are, what you want and how you can get there.

2. Wellbeing isn’t a buzzword

Wellbeing and Healthy Minds in our focus.

Being ready to learn isn’t always a given. We provide wellbeing support to assist our students to maintain a ready to learn focus throughout each day.

3. We build your employability skills

In consultation with employers, we design Industry Immersion programs, facilitate work placement opportunities and via our Jobs Club help source casual/part time employment to build employability and showcase career pathway options.

4. We’re not about test results, we’re here to shape bright futures

You’re not meant to know all the answers.

Our College offers an extensive, structured career counselling program in partnership with the Career Education Association of Victoria to identify your career goals and explore your interests.

Don’t take our word for it!

I would highly recommend Youth2Industry College. It has such a positive vibe and culture. The school is so professionally run by the staff who make the students feel valued and also offers them great opportunities.

Attending Youth2Industry College has turned my son’s life around as he gained belief in himself and independence. He is thriving.


I highly recommend the School for its supportive, caring and nurturing environment.

For young adults who suffer from anxiety, like my son – the school provides an opportunity to reengage with learning with dignity and upskill in real life professions to encourage independence and a meaningful engagement with community.


Thank you for your care and attention with my son through the last 18 months. 

It has been the best decision we have made and has really put him on a positive path for the future. I can’t thank you enough.
