A 4 half-day course for teaching assistants (TAs) based on the acclaimed book, The Teaching Assistant’s Guide to Effective Interaction: How to Maximise your Practice.

  • Opportunities to reflect on your current practice and develop specific scaffolding strategies

  • Effective delivery of intervention programmes

  • The TA’s role in supporting collaborative group work

  • Reviewing changes to your practice and future planning
