This programme, accredited by University of Suffolk at HE Level 4, is for aspiring or designated Primary HLTAs who wish to further develop their current practice. Following the programme, HLTAs leave with clear ideas on how to be effective in leading the learning of the pupils they teach, maximising their effectiveness.

About the Programme
Delegates have the opportunity to share experiences, expertise and new learning with colleagues from other schools in a supportive yet challenging environment. They will feel inspired and motivated to take their learning back into school having an immediate impact with their pupils and colleagues. New ideas brought back to the school can be shared with fellow colleagues. The following areas are covered:

  • Developing Resilience and Self-Management, their Leadership role and difficult conversations
  • High Expectations, and High Engagement in Learning
  • SEND – Maximising progress and achievement
  • Lesson Design, Implementation and Impact
  • The art of effective Questioning

Delegates will benefit from a coach to support their on-going development and to help guide them through the post-sessional challenges which may include lesson observations and other small activities back in school.

This programme is accredited by The University of Suffolk, with an award of 20 credits at Higher Education (HE) Level 4, in recognition of Prior Learning at no further cost.

All sessions must be attended to gain these credits. The HE Level 4, 20 credits can contribute towards further study towards completion of a Foundation Degree Award in Early Years Practice.

How will my pupils benefit?
All aspects explored on the programme are immediately transferrable to the classroom. Delegates will significantly improve their teaching quality, and increase their effectiveness when working with pupils.

Previous Delegate Feedback
"It was valuable to get a chance to discuss the ‘big issues’ relating to our role and share strategies to manage the stresses of the role with someone outside of the Trust. It was really interesting to learn about the physiological basis of my responses to difficult situations"

“I found the ward rounds to be a positive learning experience and extremely useful. I was able to reflect on my practice and consider how I might use what I saw in my own setting”
