What do the OOST tutors do?
The aim of the Inclusion Service is always to ensure that all Vale learners access a suitable full-time education that meets their needs as soon as they are able to, but for each learner how this looks will be different but will be a needs-based plan of provision as set out in the PSP.
Subject to the terms of the SEMHP referral and targets identified in the PSP, a member of the OOST Team will listen to the learner and liaise with the relevant school in order to support the learner’s education on an individual basis. This may include for example, providing teaching support for GCSEs in Mathematics and English at Key Stage 4 or providing access to the Wales Essential Toolkit (WEST) to develop numeracy, literacy and digital skills.
School will continue to play a role in the learner’s education by setting up and attending PSP meetings, offering access to online learning and resources, enabling access to examinations etc. throughout the time OOST is offered.
