Description The role of the teaching assistant is crucial in the support of literacy skills. What to support and how to provide support is a familiar dilemma, but knowing where to start helps! This course will help teaching assistants to have a clearer understanding of what exactly ‘literacy’ is; learn how to support effectively; and discover how to encourage children to become independent learners.
