At The BUSY School, we’re about creating BUSY Futures – futures that are full of possibility! We provide a nurturing, exciting and engaging place for students who have already disengaged or who may be at risk of disengaging from traditional schooling. For many young people we provide an opportunity to re-engage and we pride ourselves on our holistic and alternative approach to learning.

The BUSY School focuses on providing our students a safe and supportive environment where they can work towards their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) – as well as find a pathway to future employment. We also support many young people in changing their mindset around schools, learning and employment.

We are extremely fortunate to have supportive and understanding staff that show empathy and flexibility in their approach to teaching styles and how they work with young people. Since opening our first campus in Cairns in early 2020, we have witnessed students who previously believed they had no future in education, realise they have the ability to do anything as long as they put in the effort, and have a supportive team behind them to help them achieve their goals.

A part of the The BUSY Group, we are very fortunate to have access to a range of supporting vocational networks including Australian Apprenticeship Support Networks, Group Training Organisations, strong employer and industry connections throughout Queensland. These assist in providing qualifications, searching and applying for jobs, as well as endeavouring to move students into school-based apprenticeships and traineeships. They also provide insight into life in a work environment, particularly in the world of industry or trade.

We are extremely excited to see The BUSY School grow and develop into an educational resource that supports young people into bright and successful futures.

Lee Aitken,
CEO of The BUSY School
