Maximising the impact of teaching assistants

22 January 2018–25 June 2018

Maximising the impact of Teaching Assistants,

in partnership with UCL Institute of Education.

Led by Rob Webster

A course for school leaders hosted at Rosendale Research School led by Rob Webster (UCL Institute of Education).

Over 300 schools have accessed this strategic leadership course, which guides school leaders through a process of strategic review and change.

MITA involves three half-day morning sessions, paced over two terms:

  • 22 January: setting out the evidence on TA impact introducing the key principles of the MITA approach; conducting a self-evaluation; and setting a vision
  • 5 March: using self-evaluation data; MITA principles in depth: what they look like in the classroom; practical strategies and ideas; action planning
  • 25 June: reviewing and sharing success and planning next steps.

Each school receives a comprehensive pack of high-quality resources and tools to support the processes of review and implementation.

MITA schools can commission a TA Review and access our MPTA CPD for TAs and teachers.

 The cost of participating in MITA is £295 per school.

In addition, copies of the book, Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants, can be purchased at a discounted price to support participation in the course.

To get the most out of MITAwe strongly recommend the Headteacher of each school attends each session, together with another member of the senior leadership team (i.e. 2 people per school should attend).
