I will be graduating from uni in July 2020 having studied Education Studies and Early Years. I aim to get a job as a teaching assistant in a primary classroom in September. (My future aim is to train to teach - salaried - after gaining a few more years school experience). I have a few queries, firstly should i invest in a level 2/3 TA specific course? I will obviously have my education degree which i believe to be sufficient along with quite a bit of placement experience. But i wonder if having a TA specific qualification would be beneficial in helping me find a job quickly with hopefully a decent salary. Also when do schools tend to look for TA's for a September start because I'd like to get ahead of the game and start looking!
