My head wants to promote a TA from level 2 to 4, so that they can cover PPA. The person has a specialism and qualifications in dance, which is what lesson she will be doing. My concern is that we will be laying her at higher level, when she will just be teaching dance for 6 lessons a week. Then doing her current duties for the rest of the time. As far as I was aware, if the person has a recognised qualification in the subject, then they can teach it, without having to be at L4. I just feel that if I am paying someone at Level 4, I want them to be doing a lot more. Any opinions or legal viewpoints on this? Do governors have to approve a TAs promotion?
