Creating a Caring School: A Guide for School Management Teams. Learning Guide: Unit 3 - Care for vulnerable learners

Primary tabs

In Unit 3 we place the spotlight on learners and investigate what we mean by vulnerable learners, what challenges they face, and why the school can be such a powerful and positive influence in their lives. We hope that deeper insight into the plight of vulnerable learners will motivate you and your management team to put in place simple information gathering system that enables you to pinpoint accurately who is vulnerable in your school. Dependable management information will enable you to make informed decisions about the support and care strategies that are best suited to your school context. Managing information about vulnerable learners and their needs is an integral part of an overall plan to respond proactively to the dire situation that many of your learners have to cope with.
