This book provides the underpinning knowledge to support teaching assistants (TAs) in all phases of schooling when undertaking study at a basic level. It contains practical examples of work, and ideas to try out. By actively learning about the work they do, TAs can gain greater confidence and understanding about the tasks they are asked to undertake. This guide will help TAs understand how pupils learn and shows how they can develop skills to support the teacher and various aspects of the curriculum.
