Walker Learning | ELF Session Management Portal

Walker Learning is a holistic approach to teaching to the whole of a child and committed to developing children who can think for themselves and for others, can create and imagine, who are strong in their literacy and numeracy, and who can navigate the challenges of the world with intrinsic motivation and a strength of character made of a strong sense of self and resilience.

Walker Learning is a pedagogy NOT a program, NOT a tool - it is a teaching and learning approach that personalises learning (Babies to Year 8) and is developmentally and culturally appropriate.

Walker Learning is an holistic teaching and learning approach that is developmentally and culturally appropriate for children in their early childhood and primary years of education (babies through year 7).  Walker Learning places an emphasis upon relationships between teacher and child and family. It views the child holistically and values emotional and social life as important as the academic.

Walker Learning is a pedagogy NOT a program NOR a tool

Educators and leaders can apply to undertake the Walker Learning accrediation process when they demonstrate an understanding of the pedagogy, their practice consistently reflects the philosophy and core values of the pegagogy, and have undertaken at least 30 hours of professional learning and mentoring. The school leadership has embraced the pedagogy and support staff in resourcing for environments, mentoring and professional learning.
