Abstract

The Deployment and Impact of Support Staff (DISS) project was designed to obtain reliable data on the deployment and characteristics of support staff and the impact of support staff on pupil outcomes and teacher workloads over a five-year period (2003-08). The study covered primary, secondary and special schools in England and Wales and involved large scale surveys (Strand 1), followed by a multi-method and multi-informant approach (Strand 2). The study featured: data on support staff characteristics, conditions of employment, training and experience obtained through three biennial national surveys; information on the deployment and practice of classroom based support staff provided by detailed systematic and structured observations and lesson transcripts; analysis of the effect of the amount of support on teachers, teaching and pupil attitudes to learning and academic progress; and an analysis of school and classroom processes connected to deployment and impact. The DISS project was funded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG).
