Making Great Use of Learning Support Assistants in FE settings


Learning support assistants (LSAs) are the most commonly used form of support in the FE sector – and the most expensive. That makes it especially important for providers to deploy LSAs efficiently and effectively, so that they have a positive impact on learner progress and independence. We have put together an in-house development activity to help you consider how to make the most of the LSAs in your setting. The activity has been designed to be facilitated by managers with SEND responsibilities and undertaken by teams of tutors and LSAs working together. In the pack you will find facilitator notes, a presentation and a hand-out. Managers are advised to read through the facilitator notes for guidance on using these materials to set up and run an interactive CPD session for their team. The zipped folder contains the pack, everything you need to run the session.
