    And there Geoff has hit the nail on the head - without being heavily involved in the T&L the work you do just is not going to get noticed and therefore rewarded.

    That's right. But it shouldn't be like that

    I can honestly say that at this school it is not, but that is probably not what you all want to hear.

    Re: Well said that head.

    Not completely right ... you have to be able to show what impact you have on T&L. At that point you can show what happens if any services provided are missing or below the fantastic standard you provide.

    Remember that this is the area that there is very little evidence and so it would be seriously welcome by lots of others.

    Just wanted to agree with Grumbledook - mainly because it will give me my 100th post!

    Re: Well said that head.

    Agenda for tomorrow's atl conferance includes following motions: -

    Support staff pay and conditions
    36 COMPOSITE from resolutions submitted by Berkshire and Birmingham branches

    THAT Conference acknowledges the invaluable contribution provided by teaching assistants. Conference further recognises the lack of national and professional structures for training, accreditation, career progression and pay and welcomes the very helpful recommendations of the WAMG sub-group for a national pay framework for school support staff. Conference therefore requests that the Executive Committee:

    (i) uses all possible means to expedite the implementation of the WAMG recommendations;

    (ii) lobbies the Government to guarantee sufficient funds to enable schools to ensure that pay rises for teaching assistants do not result in redundancies for either teaching or classroom support staff;

    (iii) urges the appropriate bodies to remedy the lack of professional structure.

    Proposer: Martyne Ellard, Berkshire branch; Seconder: David Ambler, The College High School, Birmingham
