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. Here we look at the expectations around how teaching assistants engage with other adults, within the school community and those visiting. We take a look at how we need to be mindful of what knowledge can be shared and when, and how to engage effectively with other, being mindful of the sensitivity of some situations and conversations.
