Making the most of learning support assistants

This interactive online training session is for staff who manage learning support assistants (LSAs), primarily within general FE colleges, and are ready to review and maximise the effectiveness of this resource in a collaborative and positive way. Current circumstances mean that the role of many LSAs has changed. The evidence on the effectiveness of LSAs in traditional classrooms suggests that often they may not always make a significant, positive impact on learning. However, what if there were ways to avoid the pitfalls and turn them into a valuable resource? How do we manage the necessary changes to ensure that everyone – staff, parents and learners – signs up to a new way forward?

This workshop will help managers to:

  • understand effective practice in using LSAs
  • reflect on current practice, and be prepared to challenge existing thinking
  • pinpoint how LSAs make a great contribution to learning
  • identify ways to manage good practice
  • avoid the management pitfalls of making change
  • share good practice.

Interested?

This training is relevant for managers in specialist colleges and for managers in general FE colleges working with learners with SEND.

For managers of LSAs supporting learners with SEND in general FE college settings this training may be better suited as a session open to delegates from multiple organisations.
