The purpose of the College's Transition Program is to provide identified students with targeted support within a classroom setting that provides both intense literacy and numeracy support but also explicit teaching around the concept of “switching” cultures if required.
It has been designed to accelerate student learning using explicit programs to assist “bridge the gap”. Further, the program is structured such that each lesson has a specific skill focus and incorporates Indigenous perspectives. It is an integrated approach with one teacher delivering English, Maths, Humanities, Science and Religious Education.
Work plans have been adapted from the National Curriculum based on the prospective abilities of the students. This classroom will function on an integrated model where one teacher will deliver set KLAs utilizing a common theme or topic to facilitate transfer of knowledge and skills.
Teacher discretion will be used to determine flexibility of time, place, length of lessons (except where supervising teachers may need to take a class).
The overall goal is to assist students to become confident, competent and contributing members of their home, school and (eventually) work communities.
