'Some schools cannot afford the time to induct TAs fully in all aspects of legislation so this book is an excellent guide. It also demonstrates how the national occupational standards of the Supporting Teaching and Learning NVQ sits within the principles of Every Child Matters. A very useful and easy book to have as a staff resource.' - Customer Review on Amazon
