Abstract

Mencap’s Inspired Educators project took place within the context of nationally expressed concerns (eg Ofsted 2004, 2010, Blatchford et al 2009) regarding the deployment of Teaching Assistants (TA) to support children with SEN and disabilities. Questions had been raised regarding the effectiveness of methods of deployment employed in some schools and the degree of impact on pupil learning.

The project aimed to deliver expert advice, information and training to support schools in maximising the impact of Teaching Assistants (TA). In the academic year September 2013 to July 2014 Mencap sought to support over 1,500 education professionals across England through the project.
