Training for schools: Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants (MITA)

Date for the diary: 7th October 2014MITA programme Oct 2014

The Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants (MITA) programme aims to help schools get the best out of their Teaching Assistants through better preparation and deployment. The next MITA programme, run by a team of experienced researchers, will be held at the Institute of Education (IOE) on Tuesday 7th October 2014.

“The training day will lead to an action plan for your school. Planning will be informed by the results of an audit, which will be conducted for you prior to the training day. Over the autumn and spring terms 2014/15, one of our expert Facilitators will make two consultancy visits to your school to assist and advise on the implementation of your action plan. Towards the end of the spring term, we will assist your evaluation of the work you have undertaken in your school. Finally, there will be a second session at the IOE in March 2015, where participating schools will be invited to share their work and next steps.”
