Supervisor toolkit

As a supervisor, your role is to support your student to develop their skills and knowledge to become an independent learner.

You can help them to establish good routines and study habits, and check that their work is completed and returned regularly.

Making sure your student has a space to do their work that has good light, is comfortable and clear, and that they have water and a snack is a good place to start.

Our learning advisors and teachers will involve you in your student’s learning and are happy to answer any questions you might have about supporting them.

Supervisor Support Advisor Adele Harris is available by telephone and email to help supervisors of students from early childhood age to Year 13.

As supervisors, you play an important role in supporting your students and helping them to develop the skills and knowledge to become independent learners.

Please feel free to contact Adele for advice about a range of topics, such as motivating your student, helping them to establish routines, and setting up a suitable space for them to work.

Adele is available to advise and help all supervisors with anything that is not specifically teaching-related. She is also the contact point for enquiries from supervisors studying the Teacher Aide Certificate through the Open Polytechnic.

You can contact Adele on 0800 65 99 88 ext 8244 from Monday to Friday or by email to adele.harris@tekura.school.nz
