About Teaching Assistant
Teaching assistants carry out a range of practical and administrative tasks, and work under the direction of the class teacher in the supervision and support of pupils' learning. In doing this they are helping to make more time available for the teacher to teach.
Classroom Teaching assistants work under the direction and supervision of teachers in order to help promote effective learning and teaching. Teaching Assistants carry out tasks delegated to them by teachers and refer back to teachers on issues requiring professional expertise.
