'This new edition helps the reader better understand their role in the school and classroom, in the complex and constantly changing world of education. It provides excellent support for helping the reader develop greater effectiveness in their classroom practice, both through exploring the theory that underpins the topics covered and by providing practical support and advice' - Gianna Knowles, Co-ordinator for the Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning Support and Primary Senior Lecturer in Education, University of Chichester
This book is in a practical toolkit form and is particularly useful when teaching foundation degree or HLTA level as it explores TA from a contemporary perspective and is mapped to HLTA standards. It is an interesting read in its own right and sectioned into roles, responsibilities, relationships, supporting pupils, supporting learning and supporting the curriculum.
I have found this book very useful with theory and practice.
Clearly written, relevant topics and helpful activities
Extremely useful on both a theoretical and practical level
Very relevant text
Excellent text, that is easy to follow and will help learners with the knowledge and understanding in the Level Three qualification.
Helpful book - recommended as part of wider range of helpful books
An excellent resource for those studying Foundation Degree Learning Support. Covers areas such as behaviour management, inclusion, supporting national curriculum subjects, supporting pupils and roles and responsibilities. Provides practical activities and encourages reflection.

This is a fabulous book for teaching assistants completing a Foundation Degree. It covers a wide range of relevant and important topics in a very accessible way.
AS a tutor of Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools courses, i found this book very useful in supporting my planning of the new QCF courses
This is a fantastic book for all teaching assistants and those wanting to go on further to HLTA status as the standards are made clear throughout. Every student should have a copy.
A must have for every teaching assistant which should be known as their bible.
very accessible text - learners were impressed with the range of coverage
Good broad-based information source for TAs
This book is essential reading for teaching assistants. It answers key questions in a clear and concise fashion
A text that is more likely to assist a teaching assitant in completing a course of study, rather than improve their classroom skills.
