Such a fun lesson!

List of Jobs to delegate to find Teaching Assistant, support staff or work experience people

If you struggle to delegate or ask your support staff to do jobs as you feel bad here is a a list of weekly jobs you could ask them to undertake. A lot of support staff like to help and like to complete different tasks as it makes the day go quicker but also gives them a source of satisfaction. If you are a member of support staff you could use this list to give you ideas of what things you could ask to do to help out the teacher you are working with. My support staff are amazing at working their way through these jobs and it helps me out massively.

TA Activity Planner (Editable)

I created this resource when I was completing my teacher training as I wanted to evidence that I had explicitly planned for a teaching assistant. I found it worked really well, especially as the TA was fairly new to the role. I would recommend this resource to NQTs and teachers with new teaching assistants. I have left an example plan that can be edited. The second sheet also allows the TA to give some written feedback about how the activity went.
