Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour Service

The Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour (RTLB) Service are available to work alongside schools and kura to provide learning support when it is needed. Support includes system wide, targeted or individual support so that children and young people with learning support needs, including disabilities are welcome and where their achievement, progress, wellbeing and participation is valued.

What are RTLB?

RTLB are specialist, itinerant kaiako or teachers who work across a number of schools and kura. They work with education providers and other agencies and service providers to identify local needs and resources, and plan support based on the evidence of what works, to best support children and young people to learn.

Talk to your school about whether a request for support is right for your child.
