We started our journey looking at the Ministry of Education’s Six Point Learner Support Plan and investigate the Learner Support Register for student needs
Our next step in 2019 was to form a Learner Support Team and Panel.
Our team gathered numerical data across our Kahui Ako to identify our top four needs: ASD Autism, Add/ADHD, Anxiety and Dys (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia etc)
Next we developed our own Learner Support Register and continue to refine where required.
We developed our method of informed consent and privacy protocol, with the roll out of our first consent letter to all students.
This year we used the learner support registers to transition student information from our Primary Schools to the College.
It has been a focus for us to provide Professional Development resources for our Kahui Ako staff. There are a variety of resources which will be available on our website. More extensive resources are being developed for our four main areas of need.
Our next steps are to create links within our local community to enhance our ability to provide for the needs of our students in the most efficient way.
