Arranged in question and answer format, it covers all the essential information that teaching assistants need to know in an easily accessible book. It includes:
- the themes of becoming a teaching assistant (training and funding possibilities, finding vacancies and getting through the selection process)
- what the job entails
- getting started, managing workload
- dealing with behaviour
- working with colleagues.
Differing from others on the market in that it focuses specifically on the core ‘need to know’ items for TAs, this book is authoritative and reassuring - delivering exactly what TAs need to help them on the job. It also explores areas of possible future development and career progression combined with sources of further information.
