IEP in secondary
The IEP process in secondary schools
Following the launch of Collaboration for Success: Individual Education Plans in 2011, secondary schools fed back to the Ministry that further information, specifically related to strengthening the IEP process in secondary schools needed to be developed.
In response to this, a Secondary Advisory group was formed in 2012. The purpose of this group was to advise the Ministry on how a successful IEP process should look in secondary schools.
The Secondary Advisory group gathered materials from a range of different sources about IEP processes and examples of documents that are currently in use by secondary schools. They also developed information for schools around the important themes of leadership, IEP support documents and transition.
The Ministry would like to thank the members of the Secondary Advisory Group for their advice and support -
Ann Sweet, Mt Maunganui College; Jackie Wood, Baradene College; Jocelyn Springthorpe, Queen's High School; John Robinson, Onslow College; Mary McDonald, Garin College; Rachelle Stratton, Tauranga Boys' College; and Rosemary Mirams, Wellington Girls' College.
Video presentations and download documents
The resources have been organised into a series of video presentations with accompanying documents for download.
You will hear about strategies and tips from our panel of contributors - two HOD Learning Support and a Specialist Teacher - plus representatives from other secondary schools, as well as students and parents talking about their experiences of a successful IEP process.
The five parts of the series are delivered in the tabs on this page or by clicking these links:

- About transition
We hope you find these resources useful for your school, we would like to hear about your experience or if you have other suggestions you would like us to consider for the IEP in Secondary section please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
