LEARNING SUPPORT DEPARTMENT

Learning Support Coordinator- G.W Mathenge

The Learning support Department works closely with students, tutors, parents and other agencies.

The department uses external agencies such as educational psychologists to identify learners with learning difficulties and work out strategies to help them exploit their full potential. As such it incorporates the input of learners, parents, agencies and other stakeholders in planning for their education to help them access the curriculum.

The learner’s development is tracked and necessary measures taken to help the under performing students. There are regular updates to all stakeholders to ensure efficiency of the department. Using individual education and behavior plans, strategies are worked out on how to use effective teaching to help the students.

In addition annual reviews are done to evaluate learner’s development.   All students deserve a proper access to the curriculum regardless of their abilities or challenges; this department endeavors to do exactly that.
