Support unit

Special education

 

Wyndham College's Support unit has places for students with a variety of disabilities and special needs. Applications for placement are through the Access Request process. An Access Request is usually arranged by the local school learning and support team but can also be organised through the local Educational Services team if a student is not yet enrolled. Teams can be contacted on 131 536. A student is offered enrolment in a specialist support class at Wyndham College through a placement panel process and depends on the availability of places in the support unit. 


Our philosophy

We believe that every student can learn and has the right to access the curriculum in a supportive environment. We have a responsibility to provide quality teaching and learning experiences which will enable every student to reach their potential and become valued and successful members of the community.

Our role is to facilitate the successful inclusion of students with a disability into a comprehensive senior college by equipping students with skills which will enable them to navigate daily school life in a predictable and caring environment.

Our focus is on preparing students for the transition to post school life through the provision of reasonable, meaningful, rigorous and dignified adjustments when required, differentiated instruction and individualised transition planning.

Our support unit faculty is comprised of experienced and highly qualified professionals who embrace regular reflection of their teaching, are actively involved in their own professional learning and are current with the latest research and best practice in the area of disability and special education. We are dynamic and innovative educators who work collaboratively with students, families, colleagues and outside agencies, to ensure students achieve their individual academic, vocational and personal goals.
