Ingenium - CPD for Teaching Assistants (and those in an equivalent role - supporting learners)
This programme, delivered in 6 online modules, has been designed exclusively for teaching assistants.
Each 2-hour online module will improve TAs’ practice and increase confidence in effectively supporting learners in the primary classroom.
The key areas covered will bring a deep understanding of a strong evidence-base and will support TAs to implement the training in the classroom, working with their teachers through practical strategies. Participants will be expected to commit to trying out some of the strategies discussed in each module. We would recommend that participants access the full programme, although you can book to attend individual sessions only.
