Learning Support Assistants are taking an increasingly pivotal role in the classroom, yet their voices have remained unheard. In this book they talk about their work in various schools and settings in the UK and Europe. The Learning Support Assistants writing here come from a range of educational and experiential backgrounds and work across a wide spectrum of schools, including one for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties and one for children with special educational needs. The book aims to connect with the current experience of these invaluable but poorly paid educators, raise their profile and validate their voices. By developing points of practice from the grounded experience of Learning Support Assistants, it provides a resource for their training and development. This book is for Learning Support Assistants, for their trainers and mentors, and for the management teams of schools who employ people to support children in their classrooms.
