Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be money for job for TAs at the moment - despite need! I am just about to graduate from my Foundation Degree and unfortunately also leave my job of 4 years as the pupil I support goes to high school. There have been 3 jobs for the LEA in the last month that I could apply for (ideally would like to keep up my pension etc), none above level 3, but as Childrens Services budget for council has been dramatically cut it seems that new vacancies - particularly level 4 (HLTA) will be much less available than they were. I have to decide whether or not to take a voluntary position so I can complete honours next year, but am worried that I will be accruing debt with no real potential for a job with pay to reflect my qualifications. Good luck with FD! very rewarding personally if not professionally!
