Excellence in Classroom Support - TAs

The Excellence in Classroom Support Programme is for Teaching Assistants to develop their classroom practice. It is ideal for Teaching Assistants who wish to have a wider impact on improving the quality of teaching and learning across the school. The programme focuses on a range of aspects of teaching and learning, such as: challenge, engagement, assessment, differentiation and questioning. There will be opportunities for lesson observations at the host schools to see these focus areas in practice.

  • Understanding the role of a teaching assistant.
  • Effective questioning to deepen understanding.
  • SEN in the classroom.
  • Working with EAL children.
  • Impacting on children’s learning during teacher led
    sessions.
