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.
MITA Guide to Useful Online Resources
When it comes to maximising the contribution of TAs, there is a considerable array of evidence-informed guidance, practical tools and actionable strategies available to help schools improve TA deployment and professional learning. The problem facing busy practitioners is where to find them.
The MITA Guide to Useful Online Resources signposts school leaders, teachers and TAs to the best, freely available, online resources. It provides a solid base for improving decision-making and practice, with resources organised around the four themes of the Professional Standards for Teaching Assistants.
The guide was produced for the Whole School SEND consortium, which is part-funded by the Department for Education, and hosted by the London Leadership Strategy. For more, visit www.wholeschoolsend.com.
