We have a 0.5 teacher in the nursery who job shares with a TA Level 4. For next September I would like the TA to be the full-time 'teacher' and remove the teacher. The TA is actually more competent. As some would say 'there has to be a teacher' the school would pay for a part-time teacher training course whilst she is the nursery 'teacher'. For me everyone's a winner Children and parents get best member of staff, she gets increased pay and responsibility plus 100% funding for course, the school saves money in these difficult times, What do you think?
