    Hi Susan,
    It is difficult but really important to support TAS. There are lots of ways to do this, I have a team of 16 TAs- here are some ideas of strategies that I use currently:
    – daily team briefing means that everyone feels in touch and has the chance to ask questions too
    – 15 minute 1:1s with each member of the team once a term – highly focused
    – organise TAs into teams or partners and have regular ‘team meetings where they discuss and support each other with any issues
    – a TA CPD programme
    – a TA specific performance management system
    I am an experienced and working SENCO but do it as a job share now and have my own consultancy where I do offer SENCO mentoring.
    There is10% off for schools who quote SENCO forum at the moment.
    Best of luck,
