Student Applications

A focused approach that ensures your students get the right kind of support.

Overview

We work with students, educators, schools, and districts in a variety of capacities. The SET-BC mandate is to support students with complex needs and that’s where our services start. We take a needs-based approach to support, and focus our services on the students with the most diverse and significant learning needs. We’re motivated by our goal to build the capacity of all B.C. school districts to support their students, to help lay their foundation, and to encourage a sense of belongingness, connection, and purpose for all students in their educational settings.

How it Works

  1. Learn about SET-BC’s available services below including how to initiate a Request for Service.
  2. For students, requests are made through your District Partner, who will apply to SET-BC on your behalf and create a SET-BC Student Profile.
  3. Student requests are considered based on need and support capacity by our Provincial Review Team.
  4. Successful applicants are assigned to a Lead Educator who will contact the school for next steps.
  5. For additional support and services, teachers, administrators, specialists, and district partners can use the contact forms below on an ongoing basis.
  6. For classroom, school, and district level services, SET-BC will assess what technology already exists and build upon that.
  7. Districts, schools, and classroom/specialist team members can also take advantage of hands-on training through SET-BC’s Professional Learning Services. Visit our PLS Page to learn more.

Our Core Services

Student Services

We focus our services on the students with the most diverse and significant learning needs. As we move from an allocated number of services per district to instead supporting districts with these students, our needs-based approach will be based on a District Profile. This District Profile is prepared by district staff in conjunction with SET-BC, our staffing levels, and our budget. Districts will continue to decide on and prioritize which students to put forward for service requests.

How to Access Student Services

Classroom Services

Classroom-based Services may be requested by school teams on an ongoing basis throughout the school year. This is intended to help teachers build their capacity in using assistive technology, allow all students to successfully access the curriculum, and support inclusion for all learners. Services could include classroom consultations, technology solution identification and loan, class and school staff professional learning, and implementation and technical support during the service year.

School Services

School-based support services are co-developed between SET-BC and the school staff to address unique professional learning needs identified by a school team to support a whole school site. Our school services will start assessing what technology is already available within the school site and build upon that. These services could arise from a Student Based Support already in place, or could come from teachers, administrators or district teams who will apply directly to SET-BC.

District Services

District-based services help districts facilitate capacity building.

All services must be requested through a SET-BC District Partner. Currently, SET-BC does not deal directly with any schools, teachers, or parents.

SET-BC is a Provincial Outreach Program funded by the BC Ministry of Education. Our mandate is to only support BC school districts, and we therefore do not offer service outside of BC. For services in other projects or countries, we recommend consulting with your local educational services to see if your province, state, or county offer a similar service or program.

SET-BC does still work with classrooms as in the previous model. Classroom projects are typically between 6 to 8 weeks in length, however, we do not leave equipment at the conclusion of a project. In general, SET-BC’s Classroom Based solutions are about building capacity and inclusive best practices. To learn more about Classroom Services, visit our Student Applications page.
