Teaching and Learning Support
The Teaching and Learning Support team promote whole school inclusive practices and individual pathway planning as the foundation for learning for all students including those working towards academic benchmarks who may be at academic risk, with special education needs or disability.
Curriculum Year 7 - Year 9
Responding to the needs of students identified at Academic Risk requiring additional support and assistance to achieve academic benchmarks. Students are supported by experienced teachers and Education Assistants who provide a modified curriculum intent on developing the literacy and numeracy skills required to successfully achieve in school and beyond.
Education Support (LEAP classes)
The LEAP (Learning Enrichment and Active Partnerships) Education Support program was developed to promote relevant learning pathways in an inclusive setting for students with special education needs and intellectual disability. Our programs reflect a "skills for life" focus where students develop functional literacy, numeracy, health, social and employability skills required to participate actively and safely at school, home and within the community, tailored to suit their interests, needs and goals beyond school.
Autism Support Program (ASP)
The Autism Support Program (ASP) at Canning Vale College supports high functioning students with Autism Spectrum Disorder/Asperger's syndrome to achieve their personal and academic goals. The program provides assistance via education assistants in identified mainstream classes and small group support programs delivered by the Autism Specialist teacher. A highlight of the program is the ASP Homeroom where students are provided with strategies and support to develop the achievement of positive academic, behavioural, social and emotional outcomes designed to maximise students' independence and access to further education and/or successful employment. The ASP Homeroom is open during break times where students can choose to attend and access a range of activities to allow them to develop positive social skills in a friendly environment. The ASP homeroom is monitored by staff members during these times.
Workplace Learning (WPL) - LEAP/ASP
Workplace Learning is an Authority–developed endorsed program which provides an opportunity for a student to demonstrate, and develop increasing competence in the core skills for work for students in Year 10, 11, 12 and 13.
