Learning support workforce

We want early learning services and schools to have the workforce they need to meet the needs of all learners.

We plan to include the learning support workforce in the Education Workforce Strategy which will consider current teacher training, professional learning and development, and career progression in learning support.

Wellbeing and resilience

We want all learning environments to access the support they need to promote wellbeing, so that children and young people can fully engage in learning.

We plan to:

  • work across government agencies to build stronger and more joined up support for wellbeing, mental health issues and bullying prevention
  • make sure providing for the needs of children and young people with disabilities and learning support needs is included in the cross-government Child Wellbeing Strategy.

Data and evaluation

We want to have quality information so we can make more informed decisions across the system and improve support for all children and young people.

We plan to develop protocols so that data can be safely shared across agencies and providers. We will look at options for centrally collecting data so we can better understand learning support needs across the whole country, initiate research, and plan for future needs, whilst maintaining the privacy of individuals.
