Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants: School improvement programme

Over 500 schools have accessed our strategic leadership course, which guides school leaders through a process of strategic review and change.

This course is delivered over three half-day sessions, paced over the school year:

  • Session 1: setting out the evidence on TA impact introducing the key principles of the MITA approach; conducting a self-evaluation; and setting a vision
  • Session 2: using self-evaluation data; MITA principles in depth: what they look like in the classroom; practical strategies and ideas; action planning
  • Session 3: reviewing and sharing success and planning next steps.

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

Schools attending the course can also commission a TA Review and access our MPTA CPD for TAs and teachers.
