Welcome to OLT Australia

OLT's tutored online courses are for schools and their staff supporting students with disability and special educational needs. Our courses are practically focussed and have demonstrable impact on teacher competence and student outcomes.

OLT has been providing professional learning in Australia since 2008 and continues to work closely with our Australian partners to develop courses and the learning management system that underpins its success. Our courses are co-designed with expert practitioners and regularly updated in line with the latest in evidence based best practice to maintain a high standard of learning and impact.

An invaluable resource for all class teachers in order to understand the needs of students and plan and implement interventions.
