M. Cameron, L. Sinclair, P. Waiti, and C. Wylie

This report presents findings of an evaluation of the nationwide Introductory Professional Development Programme for teacher aides / kaiāwhina working with students with special educational needs, funded by the Ministry of Education.

The evaluation began in 2001, during the development of the programme, through to 2002 when the programme was implemented. The aim of the evaluation was to help provide a clearer picture of how the programme was delivered, what its impact was, and ways to improve this kind of professional development in the future.
