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.

Rebecca Pentney - Research School Lead, East Cambs and Fenland Research School, Littleport Community Primary School
Location: East Anglia and across the UK (subject to availability)
I am the East Cambs and Fenland Research School lead, based at Littleport Community Primary School. My current role in school involves teaching, as well as supporting our SLT in the development of a high quality, evidence-based CPD programme. Externally, I work with schools running CPD programmes, which unpick the evidence base, empowering them to apply the evidence to their context giving them better starting points to impact progress.
We became involved in MPTA through delivering leadership training to SLT. The need to empower TAs to be the best they can using the available evidence is something I am passionate about. Using MPTA to begin this journey is something I am proud to be able to deliver to TAs.
I am available to deliver the Maximising the Practice of TAs training across East Anglia and the UK (subject to availability).
