Vocational Learning is designed and delivered as part of the JCSRS secondary curriculum. Secondary students have the opportunity to develop vocational skills in school by increasing their responsibilities in the classroom and developing their independence.
Long term planning overviews below highlight focus areas for our secondary pathways:
Independent Living and Learning and Life Skills Pathways
Post 16 Pathway
All students in our Post 16 pathway strengthen their vocational learning by completing a two-year ASDAN accreditation in WorkRight. JCSRS offsite vocational learning is further supported by our partnership with the ESF job coaching program.
Vocational Learning at Swire: EAST Hotel, Taikoo Shing
Students have the opportunity to work in a real organisation. This includes wearing the required uniform, communicating with supervisors, following out job expectations and working within the designated work space. The jobs include folding serviettes, greeting guests, preparing table seating, and packing guest amenities bags.
Tasks are analysed by our occupational therapist and adapted to make it accessible to our students. Our ESF job coaches provide support during these visits to ensure the students get the full benefit of the opportunity.

Our offsite Vocational Learning experiences could not occur without the valuable partnerships with our outside providers:
During students’ final years our team works with families to explore options following graduation from JCSRS. This includes hosting information events with local providers, planning transition student profiles and/or visits.
Each graduating student leaves with a comprehensive assessment of their learning profile evidenced in school reports, IEPS and therapy exit reports.
