Urban Secondary Schools and the NTSDE

Urban secondary schools in the NT and SA are able to enrol students with us who have needs that cannot be met by their home school. NTSDE works with the home school and the student achieve educational outcomes. We are responsible for the teaching and assessing of the specific subjects, and the home school retains the overall responsibility for the welfare of the student.

To ensure success for the student it is essential that they are able to spend time studying our subjects within the school day in an environment which promotes learning. It must be recognised that when students commence online learning they may require considerable assistance in organising their time and pacing their work. As they become more experienced in online learning they usually become more self-sufficient.

Please contact our coordinators for more information.
