Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour service

We provide resourcing to school boards of trustees for Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour to provide high quality and effective learning and behaviour services for schools, kura and Kāhui Ako within a cluster.

RTLB support teachers, schools, kura and Kāhui Ako to develop inclusive classroom environments that enhance students’ learning, participation and wellbeing.  

What are RTLB?

RTLB are specialist, itinerant kaiako or teachers who work across a number of schools and kura. They support schools and kura to manage the additional learning needs of students in a number of ways including:

  • supporting classroom/subject teachers to manage the diversity of students’ learning needs in an inclusive environment
  • supporting teachers and/or schools to implement class or school-wide programmes
  • working directly with a student or small groups of students.

Talk to your school about whether a referral to the RTLB service is right for your student.
