The TDA is running a two-year project piloting a new role in schools - the parent support adviser (PSA). The resource kit details what has been learned during the first year of the project, the successful strategies adopted by Local Authorities in recruiting, training and managing PSAs and the approaches the PSAs themselves have taken to meet the challenges of the role.
