Event description

Description

We regret that due to external circumstances this course has been cancelled. Bookings are still open for this course running in Sudbury - details here: https://samuelward.researchschool.org.uk/2017/11/15/maximising-the-impact-of-teaching-assistants/

Rob Webster leads the Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants initiative for the UCL Centre for Inclusive Education, and is directing the EEF-funded MITA project that is being run in 128 schools in the UK. Rob has worked on a number of research projects focusing on the use and impact of TAs, including the groundbreaking Deployment and Impact of Support Staff project and its follow-up study, the Effective Deployment of TAs project. He co-directed the Making a Statement study and now the SEN in Secondary Education study, both of which focused on the educational experiences of pupils with SEND. We are absolutely delighted that Rob will be delivering this course for us on all three days.

Teaching Assistants are often not used as effectively as they could be, and schools miss out on a large amount of potential support and expertise from these valuable members of staff. MITA Direct guides school leaders through a process of strategic review and change, helping them to improve the deployment and impact of their TAs.

Each school receives a comprehensive pack of high-quality resources and tools to support the processes of review and implementation.

NB: ticket price is per school attending; each school may bring up to three members of staff. Please register as an organisation when booking your ticket.

Norwich Opportunity Area schools who wish to send delegates to this course will be able to claim back cover costs for all three sessions. In addition, we are offering an extra discount on the cost of the course to OA schools - please get in touch with Norwich Research School to find out more.
