It's a long story but I'm an NQT and have decided that being a teacher is just not working for me. I would like a career change but to still work in schools. I know the salary of a TA is much smaller than what I'm getting as an NQT but I have been thinking about doing two part-time jobs, lab technician being a possible option and a TA. Two days doing one job and three days doing the other. Would this idea work? Can a qualified teacher work as a TA, it may work on paper but in practice is it a good idea? Thanks.
