• Work alongside the teacher to ensure adequate support is being given to the child

• Encourage inclusion with all pupils in the class

• Boost engagement with class work

• Expectation of working with smaller groups of children

• Have a positive attitude

• Have their own initiative in order to deal with potential difficult situations

• Be able to build strong professional relationships with pupils
