The Compass Institute is a Sunshine Coast based charity providing learning and development, vocational opportunities and enrichment programs to people living with a disability. Compass uses an innovative further education model that allows young people with disabilities to make a smooth transition from school to an increasingly independent future.Compass continues to be the leader in the disability sector by dramatically changing the philosophy behind this type of service from one of passive recreation to a pathway of lifelong learning, skills based training and vocational opportunities. Our values and our culture are centred on empowerment and inclusion and our staff and young people have proven that anything is possible where there is vision, self-belief and a strong work ethic.
