Teaching assistants support teachers and help children with their educational and social development, both in and out of the classroom.
Early Years Practitioners are specialists who look after the social and educational development of babies and young children up to the age of five years old.
Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs) do all the things that regular teaching assistants do but they have an increased level of responsibility.
Early Years Teachers/Professionals work with children from birth to five years and plan, organise and run a wide range of learning and play activities in a safe and supportive setting.
Teachers are responsible for the education of children at school.
Cover supervisors are suitably-trained school staff who supervise pupils carrying out pre-prepared exercises when teaching staff are on short-term absence.
