Nambour Special School’s STEP Program (Supporting Transition through Engaging Partnerships) delivers transition focussed education to students in their final two years of school. The STEP Program curriculum focusses on meeting individual needs through and EARN or LEARN Pathway. Students enrolled in the STEP Program have a SETPLAN that drives the school curriculum and ensures that individual student goals are met. The SETPLAN provides a coordinated response by school and community partners to provide appropriate transition opportunities for students in the Transition Phase of their education.
Nambour Special School has developed close relationships with a number of community agencies to ensure the needs of all students are met. The community partners are as follows
