    I've seen a TA job advertised which just says the number of hours per week, the hourly rate and that it is for term time plus one week. I know the salary is divided up do you are paid throughout the summer hols, I'm assuming you also get paid for a certain number of weeks holiday, is that correct and if so, does anyone know how many weeks?

    Your pay would be divided up and paid equally over 12 months, ie work for 39 weeks of the year, paid over 52 weeks.

    Depending on your LEA, grade, length of service etc, if your contract is 1st Sept - 31st Aug then you should get paid approx 4-5 weeks holiday per year. This will be added to your 39 weeks salary then divided by 12 months. So you get paid during the summer but not for the summer.

    Picsgirl is correct. In our LA,TAs get 4 weeks holiday pay per year added to their 39 weeks until they've been working for 5 years. It then goes up to 5 weeks per year - that's it, your holiday allowance doesn't increase again if you stay there until retirement!

    I don't get any holiday pay at all as I am on a zero hours contract as supply staff and get paid weekly.
