Teachers and Teacher Aides Working Together is a set of modules that teachers and teacher aides complete together. 

The purpose of the program is to strengthen working relationships, improve role clarity, and build knowledge of inclusive practice that supports student learning.

Each module in this series is a ‘ready-to-use’ pack with a presentation, workbook, and activities so learning can be put into practice. Some modules include self-paced e-learning. The module materials come in different formats to allow choice about how you learn.

There is also a self-review tool for school leaders to use to understand where their school is at and what they should do next in supporting teacher aides to be effective in their roles.
