Abstract

 

This paper is based on a study that was conducted in March 2002, aimed at helping teachers to identify and address learning barriers that interfere with the learning and teaching process through drawing on the support systems, both inside and outside the school.
The aim of the study is to document and evaluate the development of a community resource profiling process. Qualitative methodologies were employed to elicit information regarding the provision of education support services through community partnerships. A case study approach was utilized to conduct the study. Information was also obtained through questionnaires and documentary notes collected by the researcher during workshops conducted at school. The findings indicate that members were determined to address the learning barriers experienced at the school. It was found that they attempt to address the learning barriers through an intersectoral collaboration approach. Therefore it was recommended that previous approaches to addressing learning barriers should be reviewed and replaced by a comprehensive collaborative intersectoral approach.

Keywords: Education Support Services, Inter-sectoral Collaboration, Community profiling, Education support services, Learning barriers, community resources, Community-based support,School community partnerships, programme evaluation,Khayelitsha .
