DETA - Developing Effective Teaching Assistants

About the programme  

Developing Effective Teaching Assistants is a newly developed programme aiming to support teaching assistants to develop their skills in a range of areas and maximise their impact and effectiveness when working with young people.

There are different programmes for primary and secondary teaching assistants.

Programme aims

The programme is not subject specific and aims to develop a range of strategies to promote learning including:

  • Managing behaviour and attention
  • Developing literacy skills
  • Developing numeracy skills
  • Talk for learning
  • Feedback and assessment for learning

Comments from recent participants include:

“The handouts and ‘tips’ from others on the course have been a great source of information and help.”

“GAP tasks were useful at making me consciously make a positive change and try different techniques and approaches.”

“Being new to the TA role I have learnt so many new skills. Being mindful of the pupil as an individual and how each has their own needs for help and support.”

“Learnt some great ideas, different way of doing things. The way lessons are taught and the resources that can be put in place.”

Cost and booking 

£175 per delegate, to include all resources, lunch and refreshments at all sessions.
