Since 1997 the JCSP Support Service have run initiatives where teachers are facilitated in introducing new and creative ways of working with the students. The purpose is to provide opportunities for teachers to develop and explore new strategies, methodologies and interventions to support student learning. Many of the initiatives are an extension of the sharing of best practice at in-service. Strategies and interventions that have proven to be successful are further developed and explored by teachers involved in the JCSP.
The initiatives provide teachers with a small subvention to facilitate them in investigating and evaluating a specific strategy or intervention. Other initiatives are developments of successful interventions which are supported by the provision of guidelines and materials at in-service. As part of the Student Profile System many statements have been designed that describe the skills and knowledge attained by student involved in specific initiatives.
