The programme has been designed for teaching assistants in line with teaching assistant standards from the Education
Endowment Foundation ‘Making best use of Teaching Assistants’ guidance.
The key ingredient to the training is the opportunity to share previous experience and existing expertise with colleagues
in a safe, supportive and challenging environment. Participants will feel inspired and motivated to take their learning
back into the classroom to make an immediate impact in their own practice. There are facilitated practical sessions
linked with tasks back in your own school to apply what you learn. It is suitable for primary and special school teaching
The programme will focus on the following aspects based on the TA Standards:
• Understanding the Teaching Assistant Role – ‘understanding me and others’.
• Applying effective questioning to current practice.
• Maximising the impact of the TA role – how to have the greatest impact on pupil’s learning and progress through the
understanding of differentiation to support learners.
• Higher Level Teaching Assistant Awareness Session.
