Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

One of the key aims of our research was to explore the experiences of the teaching assistants (TAs) on the university’s Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning Support and to discover how further study impacts upon their professional and personal identities. This paper concentrates on a cohort and tracks them from registration in 2006 to graduation in July 2009. They are working in the primary, secondary or special schools sectors in the north west of England, and all are female.
