An ISF is...

Responsible for undertaking activities that provide educators in eligible ECEC services with practical advice and assistance in accessing resources that will support them to build their capacity and ability to provide an environment inclusive of all children. The support you provide will look different for each service and will be influenced by many factors including the environment, the local context and the educator’s current capacity. It is important to have a strong understanding of your role and the supports options available from the wider program.

An Introductory Self-Guided Learning Package for Inclusion Support Facilitators

As a new ISF you have access to a self-guided learning package that aims to provide you with immediate support when you commence working as an Inclusion Support Facilitator (ISF). It is not intended to be a definitive text on the ISF role. It is intended to provide you with relevant information as an introduction to the role. As such, it is anticipated that the package will complement and build on orientation provided through Inclusion Support Agencies (ISAs). It may also be used in conjunction with other professional supports, such as the ISF mentoring program. Click here to access the ISF orientation package

You are encouraged to explore and revisit the Resources for New ISF's section for more details.
