About NOS

This unit is about
support provided to the teacher and pupils to ensure effective teaching and learning. It involves agreeing with the teacher the individual’s role in supporting planned learning activities, providing the agreed support and giving feedback to the teacher about how well the activity went. The learning activities may be for individual pupils, groups of pupils or the whole class. However the contribution to supporting the learning activities is likely to involve working only with individuals or small groups. The learning activities may be delivered in the classroom or any setting where teaching and learning takes place such as field studies, educational visits, extended hours provision and study support arrangements.
