The National Education Trust has a long standing reputation for championing the role of Teaching Assistants and in particular contributing to the debate around the professionalisation of the role and promoting better informed leadership and deployment of Teaching Assistants.
Both Marc Rowland (Director of Policy and Research) and Simon Knight (Director of Education) were members of the Teaching Assistant Standards development group. This work has now been taken further in partnership with some of the leading organisations with an interest Teaching Assistants, the results of which can be found below.
If you would like NET to work with your school or a group of schools on how to get the very best from those working in supporting roles within the classroom then please get in contact, we would be delighted to help.
