MYLNS

The Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support initiative

The Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support (MYLNS) initiative provides funding to

government secondary schools to improve outcomes for students who are at risk of finishing

school without the literacy or numeracy skills they need for future work, education and

training. It is the biggest single investment in individualised student support in Victoria's

history. The initiative also helps build the capability of all teachers in secondary schools to

support these students.


Through the MYLNS initiative, schools are provided funding to release existing teachers as

Literacy Improvement Teachers and / or Numeracy Improvement Teachers. 

Improvement Teachers have the following functions:

 

  • to deliver literacy or numeracy direct teaching support to students at risk of finishing school without the literacy or numeracy skills they need, and

  • to build capability in literacy or numeracy teaching across the school.

  • In 2021, the MYLNS initiative provides funding to provide direct support to students in Year 8 and Year 10.
