About us


BE.Xcellence is a new organisation, established in 2021 as a Community Interest Company, to increase the representation of ethnic minority people in power positions, including within education. We have developed a new professional network for Black, Asian and minority ethnic teaching assistants (T.A.N.) that is dedicated to supporting educational pathways and by providing online tools and well-being support to aid progression.

Why join our network?

T.A.N, is free to join and offers members regular meetings, information, workshops, accredited and non-accredited training, online tools and resources and wellbeing support. We launched with our teaching assistants summer school, delivering our first series of free professional learning opportunities for members. All Behaviour Consultancy, delivered  a full day session on, class room behaviour management, our members learnt techniques that will inform their practice and help to contribute to the whole classroom experience, as well as help to identify any SEN related issues with pupils. At BE.Xcellence we are committed to ensuring that all pupils have a positive and inclusive learning and social experience in education.

Working in partnership with other stakeholders, T.A.N is unique in its approach of offering learning support staff a safe space to discuss challenges and celebrate successes with others in similar positions. We also aim to help learning support workers to gain greater confidence in their approach to classroom learning and keep up to date with changes to the curriculum. This will help learning support workers to enhance their skills, build professional confidence and potentially progress into teaching.

Qualifications, will vary depending on the needs of the professional development of each member, we will provide a unique pathway to progression plan (PPP), that will encompass both credited and non accredited training.
