Strengthening Early Learning Opportunities (SELO) programme

Education Support Services has several contracts with the Ministry of Education providing whole-centre professional support and development to early childhood services. SELO (strengthening early learning opportunities for children, whānau, families and communities) is a professional development programme for early learning.

Programme 2: Regionally allocated PLD

Regionally allocated PLD provides flexible and targeted support to services to meet the National Education and Learning Priorities (NELPs). Creating inclusive environments where diversity is valued and tamariki feel safe and can thrive. This will include a particular focus on:

  1. Identifying gaps in capabilities and developing confidence and competence to teach diverse learners and deliver culturally responsive teaching.
  2. Supporting children's progress by engaging with whānau to help identify children's next learning steps in key areas of learning including social and emotional learning.

Education Support Services facilitators use a variety of delivery models in this programme, including: whole day wānanga, face-to-face support, and individual mentoring.
