Description

Developing High Quality Additional Adult Support

This two-day course builds on the latest research into highly effective teaching assistant practice. Based upon the findings from the EEF research it explores a range of effective teaching and learning strategies that could be used by teaching assistants. Participants will have the opportunity to practice some of these strategies between Day 1 and Day 2. The days will include direct tutoring, discussion and practical activities. Participants will be asked to complete a pre-post training questionnaire linked to their practice.

  • Become familiar with recent research exploring most effective use of teaching assistants as pre-reading and throughout the training;
  • Audit current expertise and identify key elements for future development;
  • Share elements of good practice (individual/ school based) with other participants;
  • Become familiar with and to try out a range of effective teaching and learning strategies to use with small and larger groups of children;
  • Understand the importance of questioning and explore a range of questioning techniques that can deepen children’s learning experiences;
  • Explore effective strategies for supporting learning in the classroom and within structured interventions;
  • Develop an understanding of how to use Bloom’s taxonomy in the classroom.
