This revised new edition provides essential guidance for all teaching assistants, especially those who are new to the job, and to the teachers working with them. Glenys Fox details the roles and responsibilities of the TA, as well as providing helpful advice on how to best support the teacher, the pupil, the curriculum and the school. This practical handbook will bring experienced TAs up to date on changes to National educational guidance, including changes in the National Curriculum, assessment, and the Special Educational Needs framework.

This text enables the assistant and the teacher to work together more effectively in supporting and promoting the progress of children and young people. Written in light of recent research and updates in legislation, this guide will ensure that:

  • teaching assistants know what to expect of colleagues, and vice versa
  • pupils are given the best possible support by teaching assistants who understand their needs
  • teaching assistants and teachers are able to work together effectively to support the learning of all children, especially children who have special educational needs and disabilities
  • any training received is relevant and helpful.

A Handbook for Teaching Assistants is an ideal textbook for training, as well as a useful classroom handbook for teaching assistants working in early years, primary and secondary settings.
