Supporting Successful Learning in Schools

Teaching assistants can now benefit from two free online courses developed by a leading expert in education from the University of Reading and online social learning platform futurelearn.com.

The two courses: Supporting Successful Learning in Primary Schools and Supporting Successful Learning in Secondary Schools will  be available all the time  starting 29 March 2021. 

These courses have  been designed by Professor Helen Bilton, who brings 35 years of experience in teacher training and education in collaboration with the University's Online Courses team.

Both courses are designed to help teaching assistants and support workers to work with pupils more effectively.

Topics include how to manage a classroom and the psychology behind student behaviour. Learners will also hear first-hand from children about how they explore a learning environment.

Both courses will be facilitated by Helen and mentors (all teachers) for three runs a year:

  • 29 March
  • 12 July
  • 25 October

During this time,  Helen and the team can answer questions and steer discussions. Those who want a more interactive experience and to partake in discussions live can also do so during these periods.
