Ministry of Education Learning Support is charged with leading the sector in ensuring that children with additional learning needs achieve their full potential through education.


In supporting those children with additional learning needs, Learning Support specialists work closely with families, whānau, caregivers, schools, early childhood educators and agencies to help maximise learning, promote social inclusion and facilitate smooth transition through to life-long learning.

  • Helping the adult network around the child to make changes to the learning environment so that the child's support needs can be more effectively managed, supported and enhanced by the adults who are with them most often
  • An ability to communicate effectively and work as a team with a wide range of professionals from education, health and social agencies.
