Event details

The programme will focus on exploring the evidence underpinning the recommendations within the EEF guidance report ‘Supporting SEND pupils in the mainstream classroom’ with a particular focus on the 5 High Quality teaching strategies:  

  • explicit instruction 
  • metacognition 
  • scaffolding 
  • flexible grouping  
  • the use of technology 


Teaching Assistants will be supported to develop a repertoire of these strategies that can be used flexibly in response to individual needs.  

The programme design will include opportunities to build knowledge, motivate, develop techniques and embed practice, incorporating a range of EEF design mechanisms. 

Specific programme modules will support schools to: 

  • Create a positive and supportive environment for all pupils, without exception 
  • Build an ongoing, holistic understanding of pupils and their needs 
  • Ensure all pupils have access to high quality support 
  • Complement high quality teaching with carefully selected small-group and one-to-one interventions 
  • Work effectively with teaching  

Each programme delivery day will involve a ‘theory into practice’ session using practical examples, and case studies to exemplify the evidence.
