Hi, I have been working as a TA since September and feel I have settled in very well at my school. I made it clear in my interview for the role that I wanted to get on the GTP as soon as possible - and to this end, my headteacher has since offered me to complete this at the school I am currently at, starting in Sept 2012. I was delighted until I looked into applying for a university place... I have seen that from 2012 intake, funding from the TDA will be withdrawn unless you have a degree at 2:2 or higher (mine is a 3rd - was expecting a 2:2 at uni but father took seriously ill and had almost weekly trips to the other end of the country to help look after him, which clearly adversely affected my studies). Now, my dilemma is do I speak to my headteacher and advise that due to the withdrawal of the funding from next year confirm that the school will pay the full costs for my training OR say nothing? When I applied for the role it was clearly stated my academic qualifications and surely as an extremely experienced headteacher they would be aware of the changes in the TDA guidelines? They have not checked this information with me at any stage of the formal offer I was given. I am extremely worried by this as dont want to miss this opportunity and I have received such glowing feedback from all staff so far I clearly have made the right impression - and have taken my class on my own many times already (I used to work in Learning & Development, so have already vast knowledge of delivery skills as well as lesson planning etc). What should I do???
