Leading a Team in the Classroom

Practical strategies to lead an effective team and maximise the impact of Teaching Assistants

Do you find leading a team can be more challenging than teaching the children?!

Are you looking for practical ways to support in leading an effective and consistent team?

This course is here to help you, specifically focused on the context of leading a team who support the teaching and learning of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Teaching and support assistants play a crucial role in the education and learning of children with SEND. However, it can feel like a job in itself managing the team around you. Leading a team is a skill in itself.

This course will show you practical things you can do as a teacher, to maximise the impact of the team, ensuring good practice, consistency and high-quality teaching and learning for children with SEND.
