Education Support Team – replacing MMEC

This year we launched our new Education Support Team. The Education Support Team replaces the Mary Mackillop Enhancement Centre (MMEC).

The Education Support Team consists of a Coordinator, Special Education Teachers (case managers) and Learning Support Officers. The new structure sees the creation of more case manager roles, with each case manager responsible for supporting students across specific year levels only. With more case managers and smaller caseloads students with additional learning needs will receive more tailored support than ever before.

The Education Support Team will also better support to our teaching staff, to ensure they sufficiently cater for students with additional learning needs. The team will work collaboratively with teachers to:

  • Identify and implement appropriate adjustments to support student wellbeing and learning;
  • Enhance teachers’ knowledge of students with learning difficulties; and
  • Inform teaching practices in an environment of inclusivity and success.

The Education Support Team will continue to offer support to Catholic Education Melbourne (CEM) funded students, as well as students who do not qualify for CEM-funding. The team will also continue to facilitate our Literacy Support Program to students who meet the enrolment criteria for this program.
