Assistance for secondary school students

Gameplan is the leader in our field in providing language and learning support to secondary aged students. We achieve this by targeting four areas at once in sessions:

  1. to address the underlying language and learning difficulties that prevent school success;
  2. to provide direct support with assessments and tasks to ease the burden of homework;
  3. to train the student to use the evidence based strategies that work; and
  4. work on educational weaknesses through identification of individual strengths and interests

Secondary school is challenging but Gameplan is there to lighten the load and foster life-long learning. This is why we work with adults in post-secondary settings, including elite athletes. So, not only do we prepare students to tackle the challenges of VCE with enthusiasm and confidence, we prepare them with the skills necessary to undertake TAFE and university courses that align with their passions and interests. Our sole aim is to provide students, of any age, with their Gameplan for language, learning and life.
