Mission Statement

The Transition Coordinator seeks to create awareness on the best possible post-secondary provision options which are available to learners to meet their needs.

Service Objectives​​​​​

The Transition Coordinator is the key person to help learners with Individual Educational Needs (IEN) and their families become more aware of future educational or employment opportunities. Individual transition plans are developed and implemented with these learners and their families. The Transition Coordinator strives to build solid networks with post-secondary entities. Meetings are held with post-secondary entities to enable them become aware of the learners’ personal and educational needs and goals, and how these can be met and achieved.

The Transition Coordinator:

  • informs Year 11 learners with IEN and their parents/guardians on the different opportunities that meet the learners’ needs, thus ensuring that the best possible choice of provision is made for each learner;
  • helps in the transition programme from secondary mainstream education or from Resource Centres to post-16 provisions, adult services or employment opportunities;
  • organises orientation visits to the different provisions and prepares profiles and action plans for each learner’s transition programme.

Services Offered

  • An individual transition plan for learners with a statement of needs / attend a CCP class who are in Year 10 and Year 11 is developed and implemented by the Transition Coordinator, through observation sessions, and meetings with the learner, family and the school team.
  • The process starts during the learners’ IEP meeting in their last year of secondary school (Year 11) whereby their parents/family members, the Head of Department (Inclusion) and the school’s Senior Management Team are also present to discuss the learners’ best possible options for their future.
  • Throughout the scholastic year (Year 11), sessions are held individually with the learners to discuss their best possible options. Other meetings are held at the entities chosen by the learners and their families, and at the preferred post-secondary provisions. Small groups of learners participate during these visits to ensure that queries and concerns regarding their future are tackled appropriately.
