Welcome to the English Bluff Learning Centre
The Role of the Learning Centre Teacher:
Typically, the Learning Centre is a smaller “centres-style” room designed to accommodate small groups of students of different ages; it is stocked with the tools and technology for students to develop and improve very specific (usually literacy) skills.
Some of the roles of the Learning Centre teacher are:
- school-based service designed to support teachers and their students (this can be achieved in a variety of ways)
- observation and assessment of individual students
- recommendations and development of adaptations, modifications and learning strategies developed by a Learning (Assistance) Teacher
- development and implementation of the IEP (individual education plan) as developed in collaboration with parents/guardians, the classroom teachers and other involved parties
- working with Education Assistants (EA) in the implementation and monitoring of programs
There is no typical student; however, collectively the students demonstrate difficulties with academic achievement in one or more areas. These learning challenges may be due to a range of difficulties or circumstances.
- students with diverse difficulties in learning and adjustment
How to Access Service:
Services can range from informal discussions to direct instruction by the Learning Centre teacher.
- teacher and/or parent requests for initial collaborative /consultative discussions
- School Based Team (a multi-disciplinary education team)
- third party recommendations
The Learning Centre offers goal-oriented support to students, teachers and families.
