The TA Org Exam Group focuses on theory and supervision in the field of Organisational TA, with the aim to prepare (MSc) students for their CTA exam in this field.
The group is run by two TA trainers who are TA Org specialists: Marian Timmermans MA, PTSTA and Cor van Geffen MSc, PTSTA. The group is run on Zoom. Each day has a theoretical topic. Each day also has space for (cascade) supervision. Students are invited to share their way of working with TA, tapes for the oral exam, questions on/explaining of pieces of theory and so on. Students will receive feedback and encouragement from their peers and trainers.
