Hi Folks I'm thinking of training up to be a teaching assistant. Would you know what qualifications are required to do such training? i.e. do you need to hold a degree or be specialised in your chosen subject? I have heard that these types of jobs do not pay well. Is that true? Or, does it depend on what schools you are place in i.e. primary or secondary, together with the chosen subject i.e. maths TA's may get paid more that ict TAs. Finally, are you aware of any websites which would give me further info? Thanks in advance for your response.
