Tairangi School Procedure Statement

TEACHER AIDES WORKING WITH STUDENTS        NAG 3 Personnel

The following procedures are to be followed by the school:

  1. Teacher aides are employed under the Support Staff in Schools Collective Employment Agreement.
  2. The role of the teacher aides working with students is to support the classroom teacher.  The work of these teacher aides is supervised by teachers.  Supervision entails planning, discussing and monitoring the work of the teacher aide.

    Teachers are responsible for the programmes of students.  Teacher aides support them in the implementation of programmes.  Any instruction carried out by a teacher aide is under the guidance of a teacher.  Teacher aides assist teachers with the supervision of children.  Teachers are ultimately responsible for the children in their care.
  3. Because the responsibility is always with the teacher, there is no need for teacher aides to hold a Limited Authority to Teach.
