§ Baroness Blatch
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will clarify the distinction between a classroom assistant employed under current 27WA arrangements and a classroom assistant as envisaged under Clause 129 of the Education Bill. [HL3354]
§ Baroness Ashton of Upholland
A classroom assistant as envisaged under Clause 129 of the Education Bill will be required to work under a framework set by a qualified teacher when work of a teaching nature is undertaken. In comparison with present arrangements, this will add a clear assurance that adequate supervision is in place.
