Teacher Aides and SENCOS

Teacher Aides provide essential support for our schools

Without them many teachers would struggle to cater for the diverse learning needs of all of their students.

We are committed to providing professional support for Teacher Aides and offer a variety of workshops that focus on practical strategies for extending learning in the classroom. Reading, written language, numeracy behaviour management and working with special needs students (e.g. ASD) have all been popular topics. Workshops are held either on campus or at your school.

We support Teacher Aides to reflect on their roles and responsibilities in the classroom and to consider ways they can support all students. SENCOs are encouraged to attend so that they hear the same messages as their Teacher Aides and can use the time to discuss and coordinate their approaches.

Some comments from workshop participants:

… enjoyed the course yesterday and found it really purposeful.

…just to say thank you for the information you sent me... It was all very interesting and I took away a lot of brilliant ideas!

…the workshop was good and helpful, I liked the models and diagram used in order to enhance children's interest in writing.
