Teaching assistants



Overview Teaching assistants

Across the country there are around 232,000 teaching assistants who support our teachers and children in the classroom.

We know teaching assistants play a huge and vital role in learning, but the government doesn’t think so. The Secretary of state for Education and his mate at the Treasury have started talks to ‘phase out’ what they insultingly call a ‘mum’s army’

Sign our petition to say that teaching assistants are an integral part of our education system and this government should abandon any plans that say otherwise.
