Teaching Assistant’s Handbook

The teacher’s assistant’s role is important, and more is being expected of the people who do the job. Yet advice and support can be hard to find.

Covering all aspects of the work – from understanding children’s learning and the curriculum, through to assessment and management – this book provides accessible support and guidance for in-service and trainee teaching assistants.

Each chapter includes case studies, self-assessment exercises, suggestions for taking issues further, references and sources of further information.
