My school is appointing a new Higher Level Teaching Assistant. I have the credentials and TA experience, and would like to apply. The salary being offered is £13,000 for a 40-hour week, term-time only. I realise the responsibilities and expectations in this role can vary enormously, but in this case the work involves planning and taking SEN classes, and monitoring and helping to evaluate classroom strategies. From comparison with other HLTA vacancies, this salary seems extremely low to me - I'd be really grateful if anyone could advise? Best wishes, Margie.
