Teaching Assistant CPD Programme

Every Interaction an Intervention

Led by Kate Browning


In this full-day, face to face session, we’ll delve deep into the details of what it means to be a Teaching Assistant (TA) and how to make a real difference in the classroom. We’ll use the latest research to help you understand your role better and support learning effectively.

Throughout the day, we’ll blend theory with practical examples so you can see how it all works in real life. You’ll get to reflect on your own experiences and learn strategies that actually work to help pupils learn better. And because being a TA can be tough sometimes, we’ll also explore ways at improving our self-awareness. We’ll share tips to help you stay strong and support both yourself and the pupils you care about.

By the end of ‘Every Interaction an Intervention’, you’ll feel more confident and ready to make every moment count in the classroom.
