Hello All, I have been offered and have accepted a Teaching Assistant position,which to my knowledge they made clear i would be paid on skills and qualifications. I have a BA degree, no Level 2/3 qualification as of yet. I was told verbally i would be on a starting salary and pay grade of around £19,238 per annum at Grade 3 Point 20, pro rata term time. However im struggling to understand why my annual salary is £14,979. Why do i have two different figures. I don't understand this very well. Do i accumulate the rest of the money eventually as it doesn't look like im on a salary of £19,238. This is my first proper TA job in an LEA school, and need help understanding this as simply as possible.
