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.
Teaching Assistant Deployment Review Guide
We wrote the Teaching Assistant Deployment Review Guide to help schools evaluate their current practices and processes against the best available research evidence. The framework has been designed to support school leaders to identify areas of strength and areas for improvement in their settings. The self-evaluation framework can also be used as part of a process of school-to-school support.
The TA Review Guide is based on the SEND Review Guide framework, which has been used by schools, clusters and local authorities nationwide.
The Review was produced for the Whole School SEND consortium, which is part-funded by the Department for Education. For more, visit www.wholeschoolsend.com.
