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 new courses developed for primary and secondary school workers will provide material and guided discussions over four weeks 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.
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 now open for enrolment and will begin on 21 October 2019.
