'Readers at all levels of experience will be able to reflect on how to develop creative and constructive paths leading to a partnership of professionals, and to make teams work in a way that really benefits the learning of children in their care' - Min Wilkie, School of Education, University of Leicester
Over recent years, there has been a vast increase in the number of people who support children's learning in classrooms and other educational settings, both as employees and as volunteers.
This book provides teachers with advice on how to work collaboratively to achieve the best outcomes. Using stories of successful practice, the book explores the roles that can be played by people other than qualified teachers.
