This research seeks to examine the development of assistant roles in three public services - education, health and social services. It will evaluate the regulation of employment amongst teaching assistants, social work assistants and healthcare assistants, especially looking at those rules of employment which regulate eligibility, performance and reward. Drawing in the main on six public service case studies, this evaluation will look at the ways in which employment in these roles varies both between and within sub-sector. It will also consider how the emergence of these roles has impacted on various stakeholders including the assistants themselves, employers, service users and adjacent professionals such as teachers, nurses and social workers.
