More Brilliant TA's
Another round of the Redstart Teaching Alliance Brilliant TA programme has come to a close with some fantastic feedback from delegates.
TA’s from across the area were invited to attend the four day course which covered areas such as personal and professional conduct, teaching and learning, knowledge and understanding and working with others. The sessions were held at Redstart Primary School in Chard and Maiden Beech Academy in Crewkerne, which gave delegates a mix of age ranges to observe during their learning walks.
The course feedback was extremely positive with many delegates finding meeting TA’s from different schools beneficial, especially those staff working in very small schools. The delegates commented on their increased confidence in working with children and with other staff and found it useful to discuss different strategies for SEN children.
Other benefits included sharing stories and how others resolve situations; developing new ideas to use in the classroom; taking strategies back for their own practice; seeing different structures set up in classrooms and how these work, and managing different behaviours.
Course organisers commented 'We were so pleased to welcome another enthusiastic cohort of delegates to the programme and look forward to finding out how the course will impact their teaching going forward'.
The Redstart Teaching Alliance is planning to expand this successful programme next year. For details of how to register for a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org
