Term Definition
Personal information

Personal information is information or an opinion, whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable.

Personalised learning and support

Personalised learning and support aims to fulfil the diverse capabilities of each student. It requires attention to the unique needs of students of all abilities, acknowledging the different learning needs of each student. This is particularly relevant for students with disability and additional learning needs.

There are four elements in personalised learning and support:

  • consultation and collaboration with a student and/or their parent or carer
  • assessing and identifying the needs of a student
  • providing reasonable adjustments to address the identified needs of a student
  • monitoring and reviewing the impact of adjustments.

Personalised learning and support may involve one or a combination of approaches in relation to curriculum, instruction and the environment.

Professional support roles

Professional support roles include medical practitioners and allied health professionals whose diagnoses of disability, or other assessment information about a student’s disability, may form part of the evidence identified for the NCCD, subject to parental permission.
