I am looking at applying for a part-time TA Level 2 role, paid through Sheffield council (Grade 3 Scp 12-17 £15,523 – 17,372 pro rata). I wanted to know what the actual salary would be, as it's a two and a half days a week position advertised at 14.5 hours (I'm not sure how 2 and a half days could be 14.5 hours but there you go). I asked the school and received a reply from the school saying this: "The salary would depend on whether you had any continuous service with Sheffield City Council (this affects the holiday pay element). Can you tell me if you are currently working in a Sheffield school or for Sheffield City Council?" What does this mean and why would it have any effect on the salary for the job? Also, surely two and a half days would equal exactly half of the full salary? Is anyone able to work out what the actual salary would be? Obviously, I know TAs get paid a reduced rate due to not working in the holidays, but statutory holiday pay needs to be factored in of course.
