Learning Support for Secondary Students

Professional development (PD) North Island

Posted: 19 October 2017
Notice reference #: 1H9fT5

This half day course is designed to give support staff team leaders, learning support staff, teacher aides and literacy assistants a background in understanding at risk learners, identifying needs and implementing strategies, resources and programmes to maximise potential.

Course break down:

  • Understanding learner groups and needs
  • What are underpinning weaknesses and how do they affect student achievement
  • Setting achievement goals
  • Understanding and implementing accommodations and strategies.
  • Creating effective learning environments for at risk students
  • Screening assessments
  • Making referrals
  • Programme Planning
  • Resources and programmes
  • Addressing underpinning weaknesses
  • Monitoring progress

Ideally a SENCO/team leader should attend with support staff to maximise the benefits and outcomes achievable. Support staff who attend without a team leader will still gain significant benefit.
