SLR NCEA L1 SUPPORTED LEARNING ASSESSMENT PACKAGES

Teacher Assisting a Student

What are NCEA L1 supported learning standards?

NZQA have developed a suite of 14 unit standards to recognise important skills and knowledge for selected students needing support with their learning at NCEA Level 1.

 

The 14 unit standards offer opportunities for students to gain NCEA L1 credits and offer a range of literacy, numeracy, practical, problem solving and work related skills that are assessed under the Supported Learning domain.

How does SLR deliver these standards for schools?

SLR will help recognise your students knowledge using relevant, thematic learning booklets that are scaffolded to support students to achieve NCEA L1 credits.

SLR material is written in simple, easy-to-follow language in short, accessible tasks and also include the NCEA L1 candidate assessment material and teacher guidelines. SLR material is delivered in pdf to offer digital and/or paper options.

Who can do NCEA L1 supported learning standards?

Supported Learning unit standards have been designed by NZQA for students who need support with their learning at NCEA L1 to achieve "Success for All"

 

Students can be identified through learning or intellectual disabilities or challenges, needing an adapted programme or for selected students who may need a mix of SLS and mainstream choices to create an individual learning programme.
