Teaching Assistant Introduction to Special Schools (TASS)

Course Overview

This one-day course is designed to make TAs aware of what to expect when working in a Special School for the first time. The course includes a Safer Working Practices course, relevant Behaviour Management approaches for TAs in challenging environments, an introduction to the massive amount of SEND jargon, and awareness of day-to-day expectations of the schools, the pupils and other staff. The day concludes with analysis of a range of scenarios for attendees to demonstrate their understanding.

Special Schools often highlight a calm demeanour as the most important aspect of their recruitment requirements. Please be prepared for some fairly challenging scenarios that will help you appreciate 'typical' outbursts and strong language.

(Duration 1 day).

Please remember to bring a packed lunch. 

Please inform Simply Education if you require any adjustments to attend our training.

Advanced Teaching Skills Workshop (ATS); a half day course to cover a wide range of effective teaching strategies to help ensure pupils make great progress.

This course is aimed at teachers in planning roles, but would also be useful for those leading teaching who would benefit from the focus on how to make teaching engaging, based on best use of learning objectives, differentiation, questioning, feedback and assessment.  


Course Overview

Advanced Teaching Skills Workshop

Based on over 1000 observations, we cover teaching practices commonly found in ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ lessons, and highlight what is most often missing from ‘Requires Improvement’ and ‘Inadequate’ lessons. Organised around a set of easy to implement observation criteria, we present a wide range of effective practices and support the offered guidance with a set of up-to-date and useful resources. The course welcomes discussion and interaction.

Special Education Needs (Disability) Update (SEN[D]); a half day course to refresh key skills and raise awareness of the requirements / expectations for all teachers regarding the latest ‘0-25 SEN Code of Practice’.  The course is comprised of two elements:  1) The SEN(D) Update and; 2) Teaching Strategies to support SEN(D) pupils.   It would useful if attendees had completed Simply Education’s online Safeguarding tutorial PRIOR to attending the SEN(D) Update course.

 

Course Overview

SEN(D) Update

The ‘SEN(D) Update course will clarify the latest arrangements for supporting SEN(D) pupils in schools, with focus given to teachers’ roles and responsibilities in relation to care, support and ensuring progress of these children.  There is a ‘no excuse’ culture in place, with every teacher expected to do their part in helping children with a range of extra challenges to meet their targets, and in doing so, helping the school meet theirs.  The course aims to develop understanding of the underlying principles of the new ‘0-25 SEN Code of Practice’, and looks to identify and offer strategies to dismantle the barriers to learning experienced by SEN(D) children.

 

Teaching Strategies to Support SEN(D) pupils

The teaching strategies covered, if employed well, should help your SEN(D) pupils feel more secure, enjoy their learning more and therefore make better progress.  The strategies discussed include:

  • Active learning
  • Group-work, pair work, pair-share etc.
  • Kinaesthetic learning
  • HAP, MAP & LAP materials and challenges
  • Scaffolded (basketball*) questioning
  • Plenary responsibilities
  • Assessment for Learning (AfL)

These are of course only a narrow selection of the teaching strategies you will need.  Look out for our other courses for more information.

Day 1 – Morning

Safer Working Practices

The ‘Safer Working Practices’ course builds upon the Simply Education online Safeguarding tutorial, covering a range of key ways to keep yourself safe whilst working in the classroom.  The Safeguarding tutorial is a mandatory expectation for all staff working in an unsupervised capacity with children or young people for Simply Education and will give a basic understanding of roles and responsibilities in relation to safeguarding children and young people as well as an understanding of some of the indicators of potential abuse that they need to be aware of and act on.

Please inform Simply Education if you require any adjustments to attend our training or if you have any allergies we need to be aware of.

 

 

Day 1 – Afternoon: 

Behaviour Management Workshop

The most common bad behaviour / low level disruption experienced by all teachers consists of calling out, chatting at inappropriate times, arriving late, asking distracting questions, tapping, rocking, anything involving make-up or telecommunications equipment or indeed any other behaviour that impedes learning.

It sounds insignificant, but is something many teachers struggle with every day.  Would you like the opportunity to learn and discuss new techniques?  If so why not attend one of our Behavioural Management proactive workshop sessions, exploring the necessary skills needed to manage the behaviour for learning in classrooms.  The skills covered will help to reduce your stress and make your classroom a much better place to work for you and your pupils.

Please inform Simply Education if you require any adjustments to attend our training or if you have any allergies we need to be aware of.
