    I am currently applying for TA positions in my area, the adverts state that the salary is 'pay scale - grade d'.
    However, when i go to the pay scales they are numbered not lettered, so what does grade d mean? I want to try and figure out my monthly take home, but how can i do this when i dont know what grade d means?!

    Anyone who knows what this means, i would love to know!!

    Working out TA salaries has always been like wading through treacle!

    I'm sorry, I don't know what Grade D would be either - every LA uses different pay scales. Ours are numbered. You could try ringing your local council and ask for payroll department - they should be able to shed some light on the question. But remember, whatever salary they quote will be for a full-time job - 37 hours a week, 52 weeks of the year. By the time it has been worked our pro-rata for the hours you will be working and term time only, it will be much less.

    Good luck with the job hunt.
