We are very pleased to announce the publication of Teaching Assistants in International Schools.

This new book is published in partnership with COBIS (the Council of British International Schools) and edited by Dr Estelle Tarry and Dr Anna Cox, from the University of Northampton.

It takes the form collaborative collection of edited essays that offers support and guidance to teaching assistants and has the subtitle: ‘Much more than cutting, sticking and washing up paint pots’.

Effective TAs impact on classroom engagement, classroom control, pastoral care, peer relationships, teachers stress levels, individual attention, positive approach to learning, and, ultimately, academic achievement.

The reflections of the contributors in this book come from varying perspectives. All understand the realities of the TA role yet retain a spark of imagination and creativity about what might be possible. Case studies are included from TAs in a variety of schools, many affiliated to the Council of British International Schools.

Contributors include: Ken Bland; Helen Bradley-Jones; Anna Cox; Julie Jones; Joanne Marshall; Rebecca Portsmouth; Andrew Smith; Estelle Tarry; Wendy Turner; Christine Williams; and Wendy Yarnall. The foreword is written by Colin Bell, Executive Director of the Council of British International Schools.
