Celebrating Teaching Assistants, Learning Support assistants, Cover Supervisors and

                               Learning Mentors across England and Wales:

 

                         National Teaching Assistant Day Friday 14th September. 

According to the event’s website ‘96% of headteachers believe TAs add value to their school. 

Nearly half of the 244,000 TAs, employed across England and Wales, support children with SEND: it’s no wonder our schools rely so heavily on their expertise in supporting children in this area. 

We think it’s fitting that this highly skilled and dedicated workforce should be acknowledged with a day promoting and celebrating the tremendous work they do in schools. 

                                  

                                       Teaching Assistant of the year! 

Visit http://www.nationalteachingassistantsday.co.uk/ and nominate one of your TAs – there will be a TA of the year winner for primary, secondary and special schools. 

The site has celebration packs and selfie frames to download to help your school celebrate your TAs' hard work and commitment. 

We would love to hear about a TA who excels at her/his role in your school.  Please contact the Help Desk and let us know why you think they deserve the title of Teaching Assistant of the year.  We will put all submissions on our website.
