TAFL-2716

​​Teaching Assistants on the Frontline of Learning:

Welcome to the hidden web page for Teaching Assistants on the Frontline of Learning. The aim is to provide all the necessary slideshows, handouts and resources to enable delegates to deliver, share or cascade the information to colleagues back in school; indeed, many delegates have successfully done this with our Forum materials. Furthermore, it makes accessing resources and web links much easier, with everything stored in one place. Our copyright terms are that attending delegates are free to use the materials within their own school only. We hope you find this helpful!
