Empowering Support Staff in Secondary Schools and FE

Support staff can be a powerful tool, as part of an ambitious curriculum and in creating inclusive learning.

This one-day course will explore ways to avoid this and keep support staff feeling valued and enthusiastic.

  • Support students without creating ‘learned dependency’
  • Ways to give support staff practical strategies and ideas for all subjects
  • Improve support staff’s confidence across the curriculum including with GCSE requirements

About this course

TAs and LSAs fulfil a huge range of roles and services in our schools; their job can be stimulating and rewarding, providing expert support to enable independent learning, wider inclusion, support study skills and better emotional and physical wellbeing for our students. 

This course will help teachers provide effective direction for support staff and help TAs empower themselves to deliver more effective support, including for the most vulnerable. 

This one-day course will explore how you can:

  • Recognise and celebrate how crucial support staff are!
  • Help support staff maintain professionalism
  • Develop their initiative and autonomy
  • Explore interactive and collaborative activities that can be used with students
  • Look at ways to challenge your students
  • Support TAs/LSAs in becoming a greater part of your school team
