The College provides a diverse range of Learning Support services to empower students with additional needs to reach their potential. Support starts when your son commences his journey with us in Year 5 and continues until he graduates in Year 12.
Our specialist Learning Support team works in partnership with the Academic Enrichment Coordinator, Literacy Coordinator, school psychologists and wellbeing teams to help students develop positive attitudes towards learning and build supportive relationships within the College community.
In addition to teacher aides, we allocate one Learning Support teacher to each year group and develop a specialised learning plan for every student with a disability or learning difficulty.
The College’s Learning Support programs include in-class support and intervention classes, individual and group withdrawals, cross-age tutoring, counselling and exam disability provisions.
But it isn’t just about your son’s time at Waverley. We’ll also prepare him for life after Waverley, by helping him to build the confidence to make informed decisions about his future.
In Stages 5 and 6, we offer a Work Education elective and Study Skills Program that focuses on life skills, employment and further education, covering everything from money management and interpersonal skills, to resume writing, job interviews and work experience opportunities.
