Support for learning and school-going

Support for learning and school-going aims at strengthening pupil's basic skills and preventing difficulties. Taking care of the pupil's growth and wellbeing is an essential part of the support.

Three-level model for support

Support for learning and school-going is grounded in a three-level model for support, in which support forms and structures intensify gradually. The three forms are general, intensified and special support. Support is arranged in the context of general instruction as often as it promotes the pupil's best interest.
