Welcome to Our Learning Centre
Hello and welcome.
As Manager of Beafield Education Centre, I see the potential for growth existing for every student. This presents opportunities for Beafield Education Centre staff to work in partnership with carers, families, school staff and DECD / outside agencies to creatively design personalised intervention that offers the best chance for all students to succeed in learning and behaviour upon returning back to their mainstream setting. We are preoccupied with applying quality interventions based on current research, ensuring that our interactions with students and the development of learning programs are authentic, reflecting best practice.
Success looks different for every student and as such, is celebrated regardless how big or small it is. We recognise and build on students’ strengths, so outcomes in the areas of personal and social capabilities and in key curriculum areas are achieved.
I look forward to meeting with you and your student and warmly welcome you to our Beafield Education Centre community.
