Continuum of Need
Wellbeing co-ordinators from schools across our region attended a training session at the end of May on implementing the Continuum of Need tool. The tool is used both to map the needs of students on a continuum and provide contact details for support services.
Vanessa McCormick from St Arnaud P-12 College delivered the training session. St Arnaud has been using the tool for several years and the service agencies there meet every six weeks to ensure that vulnerable young people are appropriately supported. All students in St Arnaud are now mapped beginning at kindergarten. As needs are identified and supported the improvements for each student can also be mapped on the tool and any issues quickly addressed.
A service directory of Echuca agencies has been created by the CCLLEN and linked to the tool. A Kyabram version is currently being created.
