The Professional Standards for Teaching Assistants were drafted by an expert panel led by Kate Dethridge, which was commissioned by the Department for Education (DfE). The DfE chose not to publish them, but they granted permission for them to be published by other interested parties. More information about this is available on the NAHT website, and the standards themselves can be downloaded from this webpage (PDF). 

One method of referencing this document might be as follows (using the Cite Them Right 10th edition Harvard style, based on at least four authors):
