Just started my Teaching Assistant Level 2 course, and i start my placement tomorrow, i have to do 100 hours over the time of the course (1 yr) so i am doing 2 mornings a week with year 3.

I am feeling a little nervous, can anyone give me some advice? or tell me what to expect?

Thankyou smile

I've done placements for the PGCE and found that thanking the head and teacher for having me went a long way. Teachers TV has some excellent programmes for TAs if you need any ideas.

Thanks Manyhands, i have in advance thanked the Head and the Teacher, as i really do appreciate them letting me gain experience.

I have now done 2 days, and i am loving it, and learning loads too, i have/am going to keep a diary of everything i do on the mornings i am there.
