Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants

15 November 2017

Contact us now for details of our new three session programme facilitated by Rob Webster and the MITA Team

Teaching Assistants are often not used as effectively as they could be, and schools miss out on a large amount of potential support and expertise from these valuable members of staff. MITA Direct guides school leaders through a process of strategic review and change, helping them to improve the deployment and impact of their TAs. Over 300 schools have accessed this leadership course, which will be delivered by its developer, Rob Webster.
