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.

Introduction to ASD by:

All Behaviour Consultancy ABC-

Founder Georgiana Koyoma. 

All children deserve the opportunity to be seen and valued at school.
All teaching staff deserve support to give their children the best opportunity to thrive.
Often there is a mismatch of the support that teaching staff and the support that children need to thrive.
This mismatch is often due to a lack of training on how to understand the underlying behavioural needs that children have. Heightened focus is placed on children’s behaviour which require additional support and can stretch teachers time and resources.
I love the impact and feedback that I receive each time I deliver training in School Wide Positive Behaviour Support because I know that the outcomes helps to bridge the gap for teachers and students. In turn creating opportunities for all to feel a sense of fulfilment and thrive.
