What is National Teaching Assistants’ Day?

National Teaching Assistants’ Day is an awareness day taking place on Friday 27th September 2024. Schools across the UK celebrate their own TAs and nominate their favourites for our Teaching Assistant of the Year award.

Why was the awareness day created?

In 2012, Teaching Personnel noticed a gap in the calendar. While many educational causes had awareness days, there wasn’t one dedicated to the essential, yet often under-recognised, role of teaching assistants.

Recognising the tireless work TAs contribute to classrooms every day, Teaching Personnel felt it was time to celebrate their achievements and raise awareness of their impact.
