Teaching Assistants' Network Wales

Why Join TAN?

Re-thinking Equity in Education

TAN is a solution-based network dedicated to providing support of the anti-racism professional learning for all teaching assistants across Wales. We hold monthly meetings, to build a community of learning support staff from all types of demographic schools to share best practice, build confidence and develop skills through lived experiences.

Within the network, one of our aims is to help raise the representation of Black, Asian and minority ethnic, professional teaching staff. We identify teaching assistants who would like support, advice and assistance in career progression by coaching and mentoring their journey. We are also committed to supporting teaching assistants who would would like to work towards HTLA status. Look out for details of our first annual TAN Conference, coming in Summer 2022.
