Develop Your Professional Conduct – a course for TAs

This is a great course for all teaching assistants, especially those new to the role or new to a school, and helpful for supporting and training colleagues. The expectations around how teaching assistants present themselves can often be based on a set of ‘unwritten rules’ that are deduced through careful watching and mirroring. It is therefore hard to know when you may have ‘crossed the line’ as without a guide to professional conduct how do you know? Here we look at the professional standards set out around the area and specifically talk about what these may look like in a real life/school context.

What You Can Expect

This course is an on demand video course that you can watch at a pace to suit you. The content is delivered in bite sized videos that will take less than an hour to watch in total. Implementing the ideas will take longer of course!

Whilst the videos are designed to be watched as a series, you might choose to come back and dip in and out of particular modules to refresh your knowledge.

At the end of the course there is a short activity to help you reflect on what you’ve learned and consider how to take it forwards. It’s absolutely up to you whether you decide to do this, but many people who do tell us that it helps them to apply what they’ve learned to their current context and think clearly about what practical next steps they can take to have a positive impact with their new knowledge, understanding and skills.
