Please nominate a member of staff, e.g. SENCO/Literacy Coordinator to attend sessions
with Teaching Assistants: the role of managing the programme in school is fundamental to the
programme’s success. Teaching assistants attending the course will need preparation time to
prepare materials and carry out assessments before delivering the programme in school.
