One of our partners - The Centre for Inclusive Education (CIE), based in the UCL Institute of Education (IOE) - is hiring a Professional Development Co-ordinator for a joint project with LLS:
The Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants (MITA) project aims to improve schools’ deployment of teaching assistants in classrooms and ensure they make a valuable contribution to learning.
The Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants (MITA) Co-ordinator will have a prominent role in coordinating and contributing to one of the IOE’s flagship knowledge exchange projects, providing consultancy and training on two aspects of our MITA initiative:
1. A new efficacy trial of MITA, funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF). The postholder will take a key role in the organisation and delivery of the project, in particular leading and delivering school improvement and staff Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities. For more information, visit www.maximisingtas.co.uk/projects/mita-eef-project.php
2. To assist in the delivery, coordination and promotion of the MITA Direct programme for school leaders, and conduct school-based training via our Maximising the Practice of Teaching Assistants (MPTA) course. MPTA is a joint-CPD project with University of East London.
For both 1 & 2, the postholder will be required to coordinate and contribute to strategic development training sessions for school leaders, undertake school-based reviews of the use of TAs, and provide strategic and operational advice to school leaders on improving the preparation, deployment and development of Teaching Assistants (TAs). You will also lead on delivering our MPTA training for TAs and teachers. Additionally, the postholder will contribute to the strategic development and implementation of MITA & MPTA, with a view to ensuring their scalability and sustainability.
