Guilford Young College is an inclusive College offering a ranged of targeted programs to meet the needs of students. MANAGERS OF TARGETED PROGRAMS are

Glenorchy Campus:     MS ZOE SMITH     zsmith@gyc.tas.edu.au     ph 6238 4350

Hobart Campus:     MS CAROLE MCQUEENEY     cmcqueeney@gyc.tas.edu.au     ph 6238 4300

They are supported by Teacher Assistants on both Campuses.


Areas include:

GENERAL LEARNING SUPPORT     for students who may require extra support to improve their literacy, numeracy or general learning skills.

SPECIAL NEEDS     The College prides itself on catering for the needs of all students; in particular those with special learning needs. Life skills, community access, social skills and transition programs are all provided for students who require particular assistance.

The College also ensures ease of access for students with physical disabilities with the provision of ramps on both campuses and a lift at the Hobart Campus. Of the two, the Glenorchy Campus is the least physically challenging because the site is flat and facilities are mostly on one level.

ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE SUPPORT PROGRAM     The College welcomes newly arrived overseas and other students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, including exchange students.  Classes are available from beginner to senior secondary TQA 3 levels.

ABORIGINAL STUDENT SUPPORT PROGRAM     The College provides cultural, curricular and vocational support to Aboriginal students and encourages the student group to meet regularly to arrange cultural events and other projects.

GYC received a New Initiatives grant which allowed Tasmanian Aboriginal artists Sharnie Everett and Dayne Langdon to create the artwork in association with Aboriginal students Melanie Smith, Paige Millhouse and Alarna Page. They worked collaboratively to tell a story of country, specifically focussing on the Glenorchy region where the creative arts centre is located.
