A note about the work of HSCL
HSCL Coordinators are teachers in schools, assigned to HSCL, to work primarily with the salient adults in the child’s life, in order to empower them, so that they can better support their children to attend school, participate in education and develop positive attitudes to life-long learning.   Central to the HSCL initiative, is the identification of needs and the provision of a tailored and proportionate response to those needs, through a range of interventions, which are evidence-based, focused and structured.


HSCL Coordinators, as agents of change in schools, work in an integrated way with all other support services, particularly School Completion Programme staff and Educational Welfare Officers, to implement a whole-school approach to improving attendance, participation and retention in education.


The HSCL Coordinator reaches out beyond the school walls to the homes and communities from which our pupils come. The Coordinator can help parents to understand what happens in the school, what facilities and supports are available and the school’s procedures. This better understanding empowers parents to make more informed decisions about their daughter’s learning. The Coordinator supports parents through home visits, classes and through the involvement with agencies who support the learning process in the community.
