Our customers love us

"The small group, flexible, adult-style learning with lots of one on one attention has really worked well for students I have referred to MAP"

- Annette T (School Careers Counsellor)

"I wanted to be doing something, but I didn’t know where to start. The MAP course really helped"

- James C (2020 course participant)

"At 17, our son was at a crossroad after dropping out of school due to mental health issues. His referral to MAP gave him a sense of purpose and direction which has resulted in him going on to complete Year 12. He was treated with respect by staff who truly believed in his worth.”

- Leanne L (Grateful mother)
