The majority of support is provided in-class, although individual intervention programmes are also accessed by students.
The department is staffed by a team of highly experienced teachers, Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs) and Teaching Assistants (TAs) with a variety of graduate and post-graduate qualifications and expertise. Colleagues offer skills in teaching, numeracy, counselling and in subject specialisms. They work to maximise individual student potential and remove all barriers to success, taking pride in their friendly, person-centred approach.
A comprehensive programme of extra-curricular support activities is offered to boost individual students’ academic independence, a list of our current extra-curricular clubs is provided below. A number of visiting experts also support the work of the department, including educational psychologists, speech and language therapists and professionals from Young Peoples’ Services.
The department has a 15 place Autism Resource Base which the Education Authority has responsibility for allocating students to.
