Program Description

All schools are required to have a representative at the Support Teacher Forums. The forums provide professional learning to enable Support Teachers to fulfill the primary duties as outlined in the Frequently Asked Questions document. The forums also provide an opportunity for the dissemination of system messages in relation to support for students with a disability. Teachers accessing the professional learning will have access to a range of online resources, tools and templates available through the department’s virtual learning environment.

Program Outcomes

Participants will gain:

  • an increased understanding of educational adjustments
  • inclusive teaching and whole school practices
  • the importance of quality differentiation
  • documenting learning programs in personalised learning plans
  • elevating school-wide policies and practices to best support students with disability.

They will have opportunity to reflect, share, refine or create strategies, individually and with colleagues, that build on their practice strengths to support school staff in teaching for diversity through optimal learning opportunities for students with disability.
