Develop skills which will assist you to build a positive future. Our group day service and post school options offer a wide range of program options which allow you to learn skills, pursue your interests, build confidence and increase your independence.

  • Group based day programs/post school options

    Leaving school brings many opportunities and challenges for everyone. If you’ve recently left school, or did some time ago, we offer a range of program and support options in small group settings which will allow you to develop skills, pursue your interests and increase your confidence and independence. Our program focus is on community participation and on building strong community connections to provide learning, volunteer and work opportunities for you.

  • Specific skill development

    You’ll be part of a small group working together to learn and practice specific skills in targeted programs in real life situations – whether its learning basic living skills in an overnight stay house, farm skills at one of two country locations, outdoor health and fitness or developing better communication capacity using various communication devices , we can work with you to develop the specific skills you need. This is also known as ‘Intentional Learning Options’.

  • Work and volunteer options

    We source community options for possible work experience and volunteering opportunities for you, both on an individual and small group basis, and provide the necessary support.

    IOE has its own small landscape and gardening enterprise which offers services to the general public. Partnerships with organisations, such as the charitable St. Kilda Mums project, also provide volunteering opportunities which support others in the community.

Our Rural Intensive participants are getting involved in their local community and learning some great skills along the way. Read what the group is doing and how they are building their skills Building Skills At Myrtleford
