    Dear all,

    My teaching assistant went for an interview at another school the other day. Is she entitled to be paid or not?

    Many thanks in advance!

    What does your school policy say? In some places it will be no.

    It'll be whatever school policy says, although it probably says nothing about this! In which case it will be at the head's discretion whether the TA is paid. She has no legal entitlement to be paid, if that's the question. Only what school policy/head's discretion decides. I'd have expected it to be clear whether leave of absence was being granted with or without pay when the TA's request was agreed.
