Our aim is to ensure students become motivated and re-engaged in their learning, and help them become independent learners equipped for life after school. The SPEC programmes are written to provide a framework that encourages a self-directed approach to learning with a focus on developing the key competencies. The programme provides differentiation allowing for inclusive education for all leading to New Zealand Qualifications.
The ethos and principles of our programmes directly link to the New Zealand curriculum’s vision for Directions for Learning; “Young people who will be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners”.

NEW - Spek Reading Resources
AVAILABLE NOW! -
A new Reading scheme addressing older students who have failed to learn to read.
Teachers report that students are ‘wanting to learn to read, picking up a book with enthusiasm for the first time, one commented that given the choice of TV or computer for ‘free time’ their son opted to get the next set of words and learn them so he could get onto the next reading book.
RTLB’s find this a very useful resource for their ‘tool kit’.
