Programmes for Students (PfS) – ALL, ALiM, MST

School-initiated supplementary supports

Programmes for Students (PfS), comprising:

  • Accelerating Learning in Literacy (ALL)
  • Accelerating Learning in Mathematics (ALiM)
  • Mathematics Support Teacher (MST)

ALL, ALiM and MST provides targeted support for students not meeting expectations.

What has not changed in 2018?

  • Accelerated Learning in Mathematics (ALiM), Accelerated Learning in Literacy (ALL), and Mathematics Support Teacher (MST) will be available in 2018.
  • Mentoring will support teachers to accelerate learning for students. 
  • Students for the programme will be those not meeting expectations.
  • Ministry supports schools using the intervention with some teacher release funding. (We will have this information ready by mid November 2017.)

What will change in 2018?

  • PfS can include students up to year 10.
  • A one-year programme. There is no limit to the number of teachers within a school, cluster or kāhui ako who can participate in the programmes.
  • There will be a one- year programme, and no longer intake 1 or 2.
  • The programmes will work in regular teaching settings with targeted students (no withdrawal).
  • Teachers will work in collaborative groups within or across schools with local and regional meetings to help to spread effective practice. We have not set a limit on the number of teachers that can participate from a Kāhui Ako. We would like the schools to nominate groupings that will work for them.
  • Teachers will be supported to develop learning partnerships with parents, family and whānau of the students involved. 

Please contact your local Education Advisor with any queries.

What are they for?

ALL, ALiM, and MST are interventions designed to support schools to inquire into their teaching practices to do something new or different to accelerate the progress of students not meeting expectations in mathematics, reading and/or writing of year 1–10 students.

ALL uses the expertise within the school to undertake a short-term intervention to accelerate the progress of students not meeting expectations in reading and/or writing. The intervention is in addition to effective classroom teaching. 

Accelerating Learning in Mathematics (ALiM) uses the expertise within the school to undertake a short-term intervention to accelerate the progress of students not meeting expectations in mathematics. The intervention is in addition to effective classroom teaching.

Mathematics Support Teacher (MST) is a supplementary support that targets students who are struggling to make expected progress in mathematics.
