One effective way of assisting students who need extra help to maximise their learning outcomes is for teachers and other adults to work with students one-to-one or in small groups in a tutoring, coaching or mentoring role. These guidelines can assist in the development of effective relationships to maximise learning and clarify the boundaries of these relationships to ensure the safety of students.
The guidelines provide clear information under:
Mentoring programs: selection of students, parent and community involvement, planning and setting up.
Mentors: selecting, recruiting, supporting and supervising.
Child protection: recognising and reporting risk of harm, professional conduct, employment screening and communication issues
