Bliss This is a thread on a forum therefore I do not really spend the time correcting my spelling and grammar. In my professional capacity I am very conscientious and know that this is an area I struggle with so take the time with everything I write and have statergies in place to ensure that I spell correctly.

Is all that the same as Wales?

My info was for England.

I once taught the whole of reception, as a visitor. (i am a nurse) it was an experience! (and I have renewed respect for teachers and TAs)

Not sure if this helps

Due to staffing changes at our school in past couple of years we have had a lot of talk on this and advice from the LEA and the teaching unions. To summarise:

Level 3 TAs - can deliver lessons which are planned by a teacher.
Level 4/HLTA - can plan, deliver and assess lessons for whole classes.

Other people can take the whole class too if there is a teacher/HLTA (not sure how far down other TA levels it goes) present and also supervising.

There are also occasions where other qualified people/groups can take whole class lessons without the teacher being present - thinking of visiting sport's leaders, etc.

Rules for part class and smaller groups are different.

"Anyone can take a class, but classteachers must plan/prepare work. In primary, only classteachers can take games/P.E"
not true only teachers (and support staff under teacher direction for short periods of time not as a permanent arrangement) can teach but anyone can supervise a class

Don't know of any website, but I think if you are in there then with the person then there are enough adults and nothing you can do. I will have a google.

Is there a website that I can look at that has this information. I ask as things are horrendous when a certain member of staff takes a class. The way she talks to you is horrific.

I thought it is only a qualified teacher can deliver a lesson but 2 qualified TAs can supervise a class when work has already been set. My father was a primary head for many years but has been retired for a while now so my info may be out of date.

Depends where you are. In Scotland only teachers can take a class.

Oh, and if you are a Special Support Assistant, I would hope that your grammar and spelling is a lot better than on your I hope that you are a troll who is raising the point that anyone can take a class.

Snowyelephantshavewrinkles Sun 24-Mar-13 20:31:48

Ok not in a an academy... I know it is rather scary.

Blissx Sun 24-Mar-13 20:30:17

In an Academy, anyone. Scary isn't it?

Snowyelephantshavewrinkles Sun 24-Mar-13 20:19:17
