Professional Standards for Teaching Assistants

Professional Standards for Teaching Assistants

150 150 National Education Trust

The  Professional  Standards for Teaching  Assistants  were originally  drafted by a working group set up by  the Department  for Education(DfE) in conjunction  with organisations representing  the  schools  workforce,  practitioners and others  also committed to ensuring excellence  in education. After completing the  standards the  government decided not  to publish  them and so a number  of organisations interested  in promoting  the work of teaching  assistants  asked the DfE for permission to publish  them.

Permission was granted  subject  to it being made clear that  the DfE was no  longer  involved  in the production  of the  standards,  which  we are happy  to do.
