Celebrating Teaching Assistants and Everything They Do – All I Do

Teaching assistants are a vital part of the education system, providing a wealth of value to children, young people and schools. The NCFE are raising awareness of the impact Teaching Assistants have every single day; whether you are wanting to become a Teaching Assistant, or are currently working in teaching, here is some information for you.

Training opportunities are vital to help support teachers and schools, with 88% of primary teachers and 81% of secondary teachers saying they don’t have enough support for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. In this way, it is more important than ever for focused training in SEND. Please find here a link to our current courses which you may be eligible to take for free.
