HLTAs Sarah and Angela observe each other’s teaching practice Sarah Buckland and Angela Knight are Higher Level Teaching Assistants. They work in schools in Bristol. This programme follows them as they spend a day in each other’s school observing each other teaching small groups and then exchanging observations. Later, with the help of a teacher colleague, they discuss strategies for successful group work.
The aim of this programme is to raise the awareness of HLTAs as reflective practitioners and to show how reflecting on classroom practice can develop their understanding of teaching and learning.
