Question: behaviour support coaches


Mr GARDNER ( Morialta ) ( 15:03 ): My question is to the Minister for Education and Child Development. How many students across South Australia have been identified with such behavioural management problems that the assistance of the department's 'behaviour support coaches' is required? Are these 'behaviour support coaches' teachers, social workers or do they have other qualifications? 

The Hon. S.E. CLOSE ( Port AdelaideMinister for Education and Child Development, Minister for Higher Education and Skills) (15:04): I don't know the number of students who have been supported by the behaviour coaches. There are 30 of them. I will come back to the house with further details. 

Mr Gardner: Who are they? Teachers or— 

The Hon. S.E. CLOSE: I will come back with that as well.
