The Top Tips for SLSOs module is presented by Michael Bolt , Teacher at Canterbury Vale School.

The strategies presented in the module have been developed by school learning support officers who work with students who present with challenging behaviours.

This module looks at areas such as:

  • Building positive relationships
  • Providing feedback
  • Working as part of a team
  • Working within school procedures
  • Importance of debriefing.

The strategies are based on best practice ideas from SLSOs in mainstream schools and SSPs. They are also based on positive research findings regarding student learning and engagement.
