Teaching & Learning Partners

​​​​The purpose of the Teaching & Learning Partners is to work in collaborative partnerships to achieve educational outcomes for all students by developing a whole school commitment to inclusive practices and a shared responsibility for student achievement. Each role in the Teaching and Learning Partners plays an important part in the effective development of educational programs based on:

  • The diverse needs of students. ​
  • The centrality of the classroom teacher as the coordinator of students’ teaching and learning needs.
  • A knowledge of teaching and learning principles and practices that enable students to access the  curriculum.
  • Authentic consultation with teachers, students, parents, BCEO personnel, outside agencies and relevant others about the impact of the student’s ability to access the curriculum and achieve learning outcomes.
