Whether you work with refugees, in the foster care system, with NDIS recipients, or in hospitals – the Inventorium can flex to meet your needs. One of the core design features is that students can work at their pace on the elements that are relevant and of interest to them, so that they do not fall behind in receiving education when they are outside of a school environment for whatever reason. This can be particularly useful for students who are transient, such as students in foster care or moving due to domestic violence issues; or Indigenous students who may need time out to attend Sorry Camps or other community ceremonies.
The curriculum is written in such a way that it is easy for anyone to supervise as it is process based not content based, so the only requirement is that the person who is facilitating the learning is interested in what the student is doing. Anything you get stuck with – call our teacher support team, that is what we are here for.
So it doesn’t matter if you are an SSO, a youth worker, a parent, grandparent, or anyone really, so long as you are interested in the student’s learning you will cope.
We must point out, however, that the role of the ‘teacher/facilitator’ is the most important role in the system. The system does not replace teachers, it just changes the nature of the teaching so that subject expertise is not necessary.

"I've been homeschooled ever since I was in year 2, and before beginning Inventorium, I had little motivation to do my schoolwork, which made it a struggle to even get started with it in the morning."
