i-observe Teaching Assistants provides you with a ready made observation tool designed to maximise the impact of TAs. Designed with Rob Webster, author of the latest EEF guidance, this evaluation tool focuses schools on the central issues:

  • deployment
  • preparedness
  • practice

Use the evaluation descriptors and guidance on gathering evidence to:

  • baseline current practice
  • support CPD
  • monitor improvements

Provide user level access for TAs so they can access their observations and keep records of their professional learning.

Visit the CPD area of the online membership area to download and print all of the TA observation comments and use these for staff training. Get in touch to find out how member schools have been using these to facilitate professional discussion about the practice, preparedness and deployment of TAs.
