Cluster 8 RTLB
Cluster 8 is made up of 1 Manager, 3 Practice Leaders and 27 FTE RTLB positions (currently 28 RTLB) employed by Royal Oak Primary Board of Trustees. The RTLB are grouped into 3 office bases. The RTLB in each office base are responsible for providing service to designated schools. As RTLB we belong to the whole cluster and are able to work across the cluster when required and if workload permits. Case work is ‘needs driven’ and based on requests received, presented and discussed at hub based Request for Support meetings.
Currently we have five RTLB who are Māori: Michael White, Kimberly White, David Blazey, Tracey Richardson and Angelee Morrow. Michael works cluster wide to support culturally appropriate practice.
We have three specialists who support RTLB casework.
