Learning Assistants: maximising impact

Learning Assistants (Teaching Assistants or Learning Support Assistants) are a large, and indispensable, part of the school workforce, yet research has found the support they provide has no effect on pupil attainment, as schools tend to inhibit their potential, rather than release it.

MITA (Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants) provides evidence-informed school improvement services based on the extensive research and development work they have conducted at the Institute of Education, London. They offer service to schools, local authorities, federations, chains, and partnerships of schools on how to maximise the impact of Learning Assistants.

Check out their website and blog to explore the research, find courses or conferences and keep up to date on best practice.
