Funding to support educators to use the online TLDS
In 2018, one-off funds will be allocated to each funded kindergarten service for services to support their early childhood teachers as they engage with the online TLDS.
This one-off funding is based on April enrolment data and will be transferred to services with kindergarten funding in June 2018.
The funding provides time release to support early childhood teacher to use the online TLDS. Services can decide to allocate funds to:
- take full advantage of the training and user guides
- become familiar with the online TLDS i.e. time release.
The decision on how to use the funding should be negotiated between service management and the early childhood teachers responsible for writing transition statements.
Information technology grants are also currently available for funded kindergarten services to consider.
Benefits of using the online TLDS
Accessing the online TLDS via the Insight Assessment Platform (IAP) in 2018 will make it easier for early childhood teachers to complete and share the TLDS with schools to support effective transitions.
Being online, there is improved functionality across different sections of the statement to make it easier to capture information about a child's learning and development. Prompts and sequential ordering across screens will guide you through the completion of the online TLDS, while knowing it is all stored in the one secure platform.
By adding the online TLDS to the IAP, TLDS can be sent directly to the child's future school. It will then be linked to the child's individual profile. Additional assessments of learning are added to this profile as the child progresses through school. This supports continuity of learning and provides receiving teachers with a more holistic picture of the child's learning and development history.
Information for schools
User guides for school administrators and classroom teachers will be available prior to schools receipt of TLDS.
These guides will include:
- the process for assigning a TLDS to a child's record
- how to access the TLDS for each child
- how to upload copies of TLDS received electronically or in hardcopy.
