The total number of TAs working in English schools is down for the first time ever – but encouraging signs from the MITA project show how a strategic focus on TAs can unlock their potential.
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're also running the UK's largest trial on improving TA deployment and practice, in a project funded by the Education Endowment Foundation.
