Professional Values and Practice concentrates on the more theoretical aspects of the HLTA role: professionalism, relationships, statutory frameworks and knowing your limits. It offers guidance and support on fulfilling the standards and succeeding both inside and outside of the classroom. This book provides:
- real-life case studies that put the theory behind the standards into a whole-school context
- practical activities that convey how the standards can be used in the classroom
- guidance on the school-based aspects of the training and assessment
- advice on the difference between the learning and teaching standards for newly qualified teachers and HLTAs.
This book is complemented by a companion volume, Learning and Teaching, which underpins the practical teaching skills required of teaching assistants at this level.
