Finding a Place to Live
Decipha Leadership Programme Workshop for disabled adults over the age of 18 years
Friday July 4th St Josephs Hospice Hackney London E8 4SA 11.30 - 4.00pm
An exciting programme focusing on Independent Living and Housing for disabled young adults
Decipha’s Leadership Project will be a pilot programme for East London and we hope to work with Young Adult Groups and local providers that are already established in the area as well as any other adults in London between the ages of 19 – 25 years with a life-limiting condition who feel they would benefit from the Programme.
Teaching Assistants (or Learning Support Assistants) (TAs) play an important role in schools in supporting pupils with Special Educational Needs. Pupils SEND Statements can often require the deployment of a TA to work with an individual pupil. But how effective is the deployment of TAs and do they improve pupils learning outcomes? In research from the Institute of Education it was found that contrary to expected outcomes TAs infact had a negative impact on pupils learning. At Decipha we believe that TAs play a vital role in supporting pupils but there has not been enough attention paid by school management to how they should be deployed in school and the role that they play in classroom support.
We have developed a solution focussed programme that can help schools to audit their currrent provision and bring about changes that can significantly improve the effectiveness of TAs in school and the classroom.
