About us

We use our research, expertise and training to help schools make the very best use of their teaching assistants.

We provide leading school improvement and professional development services based on our internationally-recognised research and guidance. Our team draws together professionals with a range of experiences in research, school leadership, classroom practice, school improvement, developing and delivering CPD, and project management. We're based at the Centre for Inclusive Education, UCL Institute of Education.

We produce resources, provide consultancy, and run courses for school leaders, teachers and TAs to help ensure TAs thrive in their role and contribute to improved outcomes for pupils.

We're also running the UK's largest trial on improving TA deployment and practice, in a project funded by the Education Endowment Foundation.
