SA: Student Support Officer Intervention Support Training hosted by Forbes Primary School on 15-16 March 2022
March 15 @ 8:30 am - March 16 @ 4:00 pm$600.00
When students fall behind in mathematics, it can be difficult to know what to do. Knowing students, what they understand and what they need next, is essential for providing targeted and effective support. Working with small groups of students, we will identify their learning needs and demonstrate questioning techniques that help them to abandon misconceptions and understand new concepts.
Our new Student Support Officer Intervention Support Training provides participants the opportunity to observe small group lessons, and practise techniques that provide effective support and enduring learning for students at their point of need.

- Teacher aides (SSOs) who support students in mathematics
