  1. I have a Scitt interview too next week and phoned up my Aunt whos a retired headmistress... She suggested I look up the 'Every Child Matters' agenda, Special needs code of practice, disability legislation, HLTA standards, inclusive education, Modes of Assessment, the purpose of a plenary, differentiation. Hope this helps.

    Retired.... Things move on very quickly in schools, every child matters is out of date now, not used anymore.
  3. I was asked about the 'Every child matters' at an interview for a Teaching and Learning assistant position and it got me the job. I dont think the principles of it can ever be denied as important.
  4. What you need is a website which has a combination of news articles and discussion forums. You could then have a look at some of the articles, and read through some of the topics currently being discussed in the forums. In an ideal world this website might even have a magazine publication which would give you even more information.
    Oh, if only such a thing existed ...
