    Hi all
    My wife is now seriously thinking of becoming a teaching assistant once her business franchise has ran out.
    She has no previous formal teaching experience and no degree.
    Can anybody please point her in the right direction with the quickest and easiest way of training to become a TA?
    Many Thanks
    David

  3. The quickest way to become a qualified TA is to do E111 with the OU. it will cost £700, she will need a placement at a primary school.
    I must add a word of caution - there is a lOT of competition for jobs, with between 100-300 people applying for EACH position. It is not at all easy to get a job as a TA.
    Good luck to your wife.
