    Hi can anyone help with teaching assistant pay please. Every advert seems to be different. Some have a pay level such as level 3 but then a different grade
    So a recent one I found had level 1 grade 3 and pay was £18,065 - £19,171
    Help please

    You need to check if it is pro rata- which means you get considerably less than 18-19k

    TA pay is always a minefield. Many LAs use the APTC scale, which you will find online. But the salary quoted will probably be for a full time role - 36 hours a week for 52 weeks a year. As the majority of TAs work for around 25 hours a week, this salary needs to be pro rata'd - for the hours you will be working and for term time only (39 weeks per year) plus 5 weeks holiday. This sadly always brings the final figure down a long way!
