Develop Your Professional Conduct – a course for TAs
This is a great course for all teaching assistants, especially those new to the role or new to a school, and helpful for supporting and training colleagues. The expectations around how teaching assistants present themselves can often be based on a set of ‘unwritten rules’ that are deduced through careful watching and mirroring. It is therefore hard to know when you may have ‘crossed the line’ as without a guide to professional conduct how do you know? Here we look at the professional standards set out around the area and specifically talk about what these may look like in a real life/school context.
