About this On-Site Human Resources course

What this course contains

This one-day course for teaching assistants focuses on how pupils’ learning can be influenced and affected by what we do as supporting adults. The course leader will provide useful information about Ofsted’s view of ‘effectiveness’ and how to go about making this happen. Practical ideas, opportunities for discussion and questions, and a practical self-audit of what you do at the moment (and how this might be even better) will all contribute to this challenging but enjoyable day.

Intended outcomes

The Course will cover:

  • Ofsted truths and myths
  • Basic literacy and oracy
  • Promoting independence and skills for thinking and learning
  • Teaching good behaviour
  • Using assessment and observation to fine-tune or extend pupils’ learning

Course participants will be able to:

  • Think about the needs of vulnerable learners and how to support them best
  • Develop their questioning skills
  • Practise strategies and activities to use in the classroom
