Training Opportunities

Description

What training do you need to become a TA? What training is given once you've started? These are just two of the questions covered by this programme, which looks at some of the training opportunities available to secondary teaching assistants at The Earls High School.

The programme investigates the qualities and qualifications required to become a TA. We hear from TAs and teachers about in-service training opportunities and reveal how "peer support" and "knowledge sharing" perform vital training roles.

The programme includes:

  • An education authority trainer as she visits the school to run a course for TAs on the "Key Stage 3 Writing Challenge"
  • A team meeting where the TAs feedback information they've received from a visual impairment training session
  • Headteacher Tom Johnston's perspective on training and the future role of TAs
  • Assistant headteacher Ros Bartlett explains the value and function of the Learning and Curriculum Support Update
