The Tutor Learning Initiative (TLI) is for students needing additional support with literacy and numeracy.
Students should participate in TLI if they:
- have been identified as ‘needs additional support’ (NAS) or Exempt in the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) 2023 in the domain of reading and/or numeracy
- were absent from NAPLAN in 2023, and who, based on other assessments, are demonstrating very low literacy and/or numeracy skills
- were in a year level that did not complete NAPLAN in 2023, but have been identified by other assessments as demonstrating very low literacy and/or numeracy skills.
Schools should use the following resources to identify students:
Schools must keep records of all students receiving TLI support through CASES21. Students identified as NAS in 2023 will be pre-identified by the department in CASES21 as receiving TLI literacy and/or numeracy support. Students who were absent from, or in a year level that did not complete NAPLAN in 2023 will need to be manually recorded in CASES21 by schools as receiving TLI literacy and/or numeracy support.
