Learning Support at CRC Sydenham
CRC Sydenham provides a variety of learning support programs.
Program Support Group (PSG) meeting and Personalised Learning Plans (PLPs)
Students with diverse learning needs are supported through Program Support Group (PSG) meetings and Personalised Learning Plans (PLP). PSG meetings typical occur every term and are a way for the Program Support Group to discuss, implement and review educational adjustments to the student’s learning program. These may include modified learning tasks, modified assessments, the level of one-on-one support and special provisions for SACs and examinations. Personalised Learning Plans consist of a series of long-term and short-term goals designed to address the student’s learning needs across the curriculum.
Additional academic support
For eligible students, VCE Group Support (VCEGS) is a class which is designed to facilitate more direct one-on-one assistance for students who require additional learning support. Additionally, a team of Learning Support Officers (LSOs) provide in-class one-on-one learning support for students with diverse learning needs. LSOs also make contributions to PSG meeting.
Students Services is located near the college green, above the Manna restaurant. The services provided by Student Services include: learning support, careers and course advice, counselling, cognitive and academic assessment.
Special Provisions for VCE examination and SACs
Some students may be eligible for special provisions when sitting SACs and examinations. These may include rest breaks, extra working time, access to a computer, access to a separate room or access to a scribe. For more information visit the VCAA website - special provisions.
