About the conference

The number of Teaching Assistants (TAs) has more than trebled since 2000, with English Schools now spending over £4billion each year on their employment. Yet research suggests they are not generally being used in ways that add significantly to pupil outcomes.

With such a substantial resource in place, how do we ensure TAs are deployed, supported and trained to fulfill their potential?

Attend the ‘Making best use of Teaching Assistants’ Conference, organised by the EEF, NET and IoE London.

Join us at a free conference in London or Manchester that willexplore the latest research on TA effectiveness and bring the evidence ‘to life’ in practical ways.

The conference will be based around the guidance report Making Best Use of Teaching Assistants,published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF). In addition to covering the recommendations in details, you will find out how to act on the guidance, through examples from schools adopting evidence-based approaches to TA deployment.

There will also be an opportunity to hear about the proposed new Professional Standards for TAs.
