Developing the Pedagogical Role of the TA


Teaching Assistants make up a quarter of the education workforce in England, costing £2.2 billion annually (audit commission 2011).  They frequently work with the most challenging children in the class, yet they receive the least training.

Developing the Pedagogical Role of the Teaching Assistant draws on recent findings by the Education Endowment Foundation.  It aims to build on the recommendations to maximise the impact of teaching assistants and to recognise and develop their professional standards.
