Education Support for Students
The Education Support Centre aspires to deliver meaningful and relevant learning outcomes for all students with educational needs and disability. We cater to students across the full spectrum of disabilities from profound, severe and complex in specialist environments to students with mild disabilities taught within mainstream classrooms. We also address the needs of students with learning disadvantage and imputed disability.
Our Education Support framework enables a culture of success and inclusion, with mainstream immersion a targeted priority. We consistently deliver individualised learning to ensure each student reaches their full potential and develops self-confidence, independence, knowledge and skills to maximise opportunities beyond school.
We provide community-based training opportunities and work placements as well as onsite learning and individualised pathways that compliment student transitions into the community or workforce.
Education Support teachers access the Australian and WA Curriculum, Abilities Based Learning Education, Western Australia (ABLEWA), Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) and functional literacy/numeracy while using ABLES Assessment Tool for guidance within a consistent pedagogical framework.
Our learning area is staffed with specialised personnel who work closely with key stakeholders including families/carers, cluster colleagues, therapists, the School of Special Education Needs (SSEN) and external community agencies to implement specialised programs and target objectives for each student.
The Education Support Centre offers an extensive array of ASDAN Endorsed Programs which promote the development of personal, social, independent, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and work-related skills and vocational qualifications within a real-world context. ASDAN Award programs have become an integral part of the curriculum in Western Australian secondary schools allowing students with educational needs and disability to achieve prerequisite skills enabling entry to Certificate I and II industry pathways.
