Training of TAs and PAs

Up to Message board for SEND professionals

The issue of funding for training of carer teams including TAs and Carers who go into schools to support children with EHCPs is proving thorny here.

I thought that I heard something in a SEND forum whereby Schools have funding to support training their staff in health-related issues such as use of emergency medication for seizures or use of medical equipment for feeding etc.

Is thre any guidance on the use of this funding to indicate if it extends to paying for the cost of the trainer for example? Many community health teams are experiencing increasing demand for such training and are reaching capacity. This gives us a problem in terms of finding personnel to provide the necessasry training.
