Course Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to support the implementation of behaviour plans within a school. It includes developing an understanding of relevant legislation and organisational policies and procedures. 

The unit applies to education support workers who operate under the guidance and supervision of a teacher or other educational professional. They work mainly with students in classroom settings in primary or secondary schools, as defined by State/Territory legislation.
