Supervised Alternate Learning (SAL)

Supervised Alternative Learning encourages young people who are at risk of not graduating to continue their learning if they are not attending school regularly and if other retention strategies have not been successful.

Activities that may constitute all or part of a Supervised Alternative Learning Plan (SALP) are:

  • Enrolment in one or more courses in which the student may earn a credit;

  • Enrolment in a life skill or other non-credit course;

  • Job-related training (i.e., learning workplace certificate, developing general employment skills);

  • full- or part-time employment at a work placement that has been visited and found appropriate;

  • Volunteering (meets the community service requirement);

  • Counselling (to address barriers to learning); and/or

  • Any other activity that will help the student reach their education and/or personal goals.
