Leading a Team in the Classroom

Practical strategies to lead an effective team and maximise the impact of Teaching Assistants on children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

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

Are you looking for practical ways to help you lead 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.

Hi, I'm Steph Reed, your teacher!

Over the past 12 years, I have taught many autistic children and young people, with a wide variety of abilities and complex needs.

In recent years, I have upskilled many adults including parents, teachers, SENCO’s and support assistants with practical skills and knowledge to ensure autistic children’s needs are met and they are making good progress.

l am an Autism Specialist Teacher and Consultant, supporting schools and services to ensure high quality autism provision and practice, enabling children to achieve and maximise their outcomes.
