TA Pathways

Teaching assistants are an essential resource in the classroom but must be prepared and deployed carefully to help maximise their impact on pupils' learning. For schools and MATs committed to enhancing their teaching assistants' effectiveness, TA Pathways is designed to allow TAs to take control of their development and maximise their potential.

Such fantastic CPD from Anspear, as always! Our staff have really enjoyed the ownership they have had over their own development.
