National Teaching Assistants Day 2022

National Teaching Assistants Day 2022

This Friday 16th September is National Teaching Assistants Day.

This year will mark 10 years since its inception, having first coming about in 2012.

Teaching Assistants really do enhance the school experience. Their vital work to support children’s education has always warranted greater recognition and deservedly so, we have a day dedicated to celebrating the selfless, transformative work that they do.

There are currently around 244,000 TA's working in schools across the UK, with 96% of headteachers believing Teaching Assistants add value to their school - and of course they do! 

I remember how much my school TA's aided with my education as a child. From teaching me to read to talking me through the topics I struggled to grasp on a one-to-one basis. Additionally, they are also friends that you can confide in when you're feeling low. They were vitally important to my schooling career and I'm sure they were to yours, too! 

What can we do this National Teaching Assistants Day to show them how much they mean to us? First of all, you can nominate a very special TA in your life on the National Teaching Assistants Day website. However, if you were looking to gift them something to show your appreciation, we've put together a little sentimental gift guide for you. 


Our 'Thank you for helping me grow' compact mirror is the perfect gift for a special teacher, teaching assistant or caregiver. Show how much you've appreciated their time, effort, and support with a personalised gift.

Engraved with 'Thank you for helping me grow' and with the option to add your own engraving to the reverse, this mirror is both practical and a beautiful way to remind them just how much they mean to you.


This beautiful hand-poured candle is a wonderful way to say thank you to the teaching assistant who has gone above and beyond.

The perfect way to let them know that now is the time to rest, put their feet up and relax with a gorgeously scented, personalised candle.

The candle comes with a label saying  'Thank you' and a silver lid engraved with 'Grateful for you'. We also pop in a packet of MW Studio matches and a candle care card in the box. 


Initial Keyring  - £20

Show the TA how much you appreciate them with one of our beautiful initial keyrings.

Wonderful as they are, or personalised with your choice of engraving, they make the perfect gift to say thank you. A daily reminder to your favourite teaching assistant that all their support and patience is so appreciated.


Engraved Star Decoration  - £18

A beautiful star decoration, engraved with your own words (up to 50 characters).

Let your teaching assistant know how much they mean to you with this beautiful engraved star decoration. A perfect present for that TA who has gone above and beyond.

Engraved with your own words, this piece is made just for them. A stunning piece for them to hang in their home or classroom as a reminder of how appreciated they are. Also available as a keyring.


We hope this short guide has given you a few ideas for what you could do to show your appreciation to the truly special Teaching Assistant in your life and has reminded you to celebrate our incredible TA's this Friday 16th September.
