Description The Teaching Assistant (TA) plays an essential role in the drive to raise standards in schools. In addition to the support provided for students with learning difficulties and disabilities, the TA may also be required to support groups of students for whom English is an additional language (EAL) both in whole class and small group teaching and learning situations. Those supporting EAL students are at the forefront of removing barriers to learning and inclusion. Addressing the needs of students from a diverse range of ethnic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, with different abilities, experiences and levels of proficiency in English is a significant challenge. In order to enable students to ‘catch up’ with their peers, fully access the curriculum and achieve their full potential, TAs need to employ a range of strategies which effectively promote language learning within the mainstream context.
