The MUT wrote to the DG DES on behalf of LSAs who are being asked to accompany their student/s to Learning Centres, sometimes even twice a week. The MUT stated that the practice of asking an LSA to accompany students to a Learning Centre is not a practice that was ever agreed upon between both parties and goes beyond what is acceptable. Learning Centres are places which house students with severe behavioural problems and these centres should be equipped with personnel who are trained and prepared to handle such cases. In this light the MUT is directing member LSAs to refrain from going with their student/s to the Learning Centre until such time as this practice is agreed upon.
