Term 2-3 2019 is going to be an EXCITING time for Supporting Learning.


For our many students who may find areas of learning challenging through a learning or intellectual disability or need adapated programmes, NZQA have devised a new suite of NCEA L1 Supported Learning standards to replace the original suite which expires this year.


While we released our material and programmes for these new standards last year and many schools starting using it straight away, with the expiry date of the original suite fast approaching (31 Dec 2019) it is time to seriously think about how programmes and options for your students will look from 2020.


We will be doing a promo for each new pacakge throughout Terms 2-3 so you are familiar and confident about your own options for staff and the exciting opportunities ahead for students. Look out for emails starting Week Two Term Two.


If you are not on our email list, just email us on info@supportedlearning.com (Subject: Please add my email) and you will receive all the information, sample pages, special discounts and our guidance.
