training and development

Systematic literature review on how training and professional development activities impact on teaching assistants’ classroom practice (1988-2006)

The initial review question used to explore and map the research literature was: What is the impact (both measured and perceived) of training on primary and secondary Teaching Assistants (TAs) and their ability to support pupils’ learning and engagement?
This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2007. Systematic reviews aim to find as much as possible of the research relevant to the particular research questions, and use explicit methods to identify what can reliably be said on the basis of these studies.
