Hi everyone, I know this is frequently asked but I wondered if anyone had any advice on TA experience? I started studying Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools in January this year (via the local college) and have been on placement 1 day per week since October 2016, in addition to working 3 days per week at a school in an admin capacity, and being mum to 2 young children. How much experience do you think is ideal to have before applying for a primary school based TA role? I have worked in education in an admin role for the past 7 years so I fully understand how schools work, but I only have a small amount of classroom experience. Also, do you think I could realistically apply for a Level 3 role or would I be more suited to a Level 2 or 1 role pre qualification? Or should I wait until post qualification? My 'dream' role would be to become a HLTA in time and work with SEN children. Thank for reading!
