Access Arrangements Testing - PPA?

    I am due to take over the role of Specialist assessor in my school from September as I will receive my AMBDA status, allowing me to administer tests, next January. I currently have 4hrs of PPA a week for my role as Assistant SENCo (the same as all other members of staff with a TLR2) and it's been indicated that this will not change with the addition on my new role.
    I'm curious if other specialist assessors have additional time allocated on their timetables? Our current assessor is SLT so barely teaches.
    Any information/advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

    to be pedantic, it's not PPA time but leadership and management/any other name your school care to give it. And is totally discretionary.

    That's not actually helpful. I'm aware it's discretionary,which Is why I'm asking the question. I'm interested to know what other specialist assessors have to see whet the usual is.

    It does make a big difference, as PPA time is reserved for just that, whereas management time can be used for meetings etc.
