    The Growth of TAs Worldwide. Since the early-to mid1990s, there has been a phenomenal growth in classroom or pupil-based support staff. These adults are known in different countries by different names: teaching assistant, classroom assistant, and learning support assistant are common in the UK; paraprofessional and paraeducator in the United States; and teacher aide in Australia. In line with the UK Government, in this paper, we use the generic term teaching assistant (TA) to cover these equivalent roles.
