Literacy and Numeracy Coaching Academy

The 2015-2016 Literacy and Numeracy Coaching Academy (LNCA) is a wonderful opportunity for ACT Independent Schools to gain access to a high quality program that is tried and tested. It was conceptualised and operationalised by Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) and is supported by funding from the Australian Government. Launched in Queensland in 2012, it is a proven initiative that has provided opportunities for job-embedded professional learning and capacity building for many participating schools.

AISACT has partnered with ISQ to deliver the AISACT Literacy and Numeracy Coaching Academy to ACT Independent Schools. This highly successful program had its first intake for AISACT schools in 2015. Currently 15 schools are involved in the program.

Within the LNCA, schools are supported to implement a coaching approach within their individual settings to enhance instruction and student outcomes. An emphasis on research, implementation strategies and mentoring in best practice for school-based coaches has earned the LNCA a renowned and well-recognised reputation. Each participating school nominates a coach and school leader to engage with the program. Through a process of collaboration across the school, supported by the coach, the teachers plan, explore and implement new practices delivering demonstrable improvement to student learning.

The LNCA uses research-based instructional strategies as the basis for core modules within which coaches and leaders actively participate in order to apply a school-based coaching framework in their school. Ongoing training and support are provided throughout the program to assist schools in reaching their specific program aims and objectives.

Each nominating school has identified an Instructional Focus Area (either reading, writing or numeracy) based on each school’s current education data and plans. Schools have also indicated the year groups that will be the initial focus for the coaching process.

We are grateful to ISQ for partnering with AISACT to make this program available to ACT Independent Schools.
