Title says it all really. I was a primary NQT(started in sept 2011) until May, I left due to depression. I've been slowly building up more commitment with volunteer work and now I would love to be able to get a TA post. It is so suited to my skill sets and character, much more than teaching ever was! However, I know that the salary of a TA is very low (very very low depending on what I got as a teacher) so has anyone got any advice for me? I really want to move out of my parent's house and be more independant but is that a complete dream to be able to do that on a TA salary? I've found a post I would love; Year 4, classroom and maths intervention groups, 22 hours, grade C, What does that mean in actual salary? Thanks all.
