Specialist Teacher Outreach Services

The Specialist Teacher Outreach Service provides a specialist itinerant teaching service for students on the Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) who are enrolled in their local schools. We work alongside the Ministry of Education – Special Education and local schools to provide a service to deliver specialist teacher support for students in their school. Specialist teachers work as part of the student’s team. They provide a range of support such as:

  •  Direct 1:1 teaching
  •  Teaching students within class or small group settings
  •  Assessing a student’s learning needs
  •  Planning appropriate programmes
  •  Monitoring student progress and achievement and planning next steps
  •  Modelling effective teaching strategies and practices for teachers and teachers’ aides
  •  Assisting class teachers to differentiate class and school curriculum content
  •  Preparing learning programmes
  •  Adapting and preparing learning materials and resources appropriate for a student’s needs
  •  Contributing to Individual Education Plan (IEP) planning and implementation
  •  Collaborating with the Ministry of Education, Special Education for specialist services support

Schools receiving the specialist teacher service transfer their ORS staffing to the Outreach Service Provider (Patricia Avenue School). The Ministry of Education provides administration and travel funding to enable us to deliver the Outreach Service. A Memorandum of Agreement between the provider school and the local school outlines the roles and responsibilities for both schools.
