Maximising the effectiveness of support staff (webinar)

Research evidence indicates there can be a positive impact on learner attainment when a range of support staff work in structured settings, implementing targeted interventions using brief, regular sessions maintained over time to motivate, support and engage students. These interventions need to be based on detailed assessments to ensure that the right support is provided to the right pupil. This webinar will help you explore these areas.
