Why get a TA Audit?

With a deep understanding of individual students and close links to the local community, teaching assistants can be heroes of inclusion. But in too many schools their potential is untapped. TAs aren’t allowed to build relationships with parents and outside agencies and are rarely asked about the students they know best.

Under-trained and poorly utilised TAs drain school budgets. TAs who take a velcro approach, sticking to one student and doing their work for them, can even be a barrier to inclusion. Schools often spend hundreds of thousands of pounds a year on TAs they don’t need or can’t afford to train and support.

In a one-day TA audit, we work with you to build a lean team of well trained, well organised TAs. The audit is followed up with a comprehensive report and as much additional support and advice as you need to implement change.
