Hi everyone I am pretty new to this forum and haven't quite got a grasp on how it works. I have just finished my cache level 2 TA qualification and I am starting my level 3 specialist teaching assistant in September. I am one of these people who likes to think ahead and I am trying to get all the facts and options of what to do after I finish my level 3. I am considering my options on wether to go to Uni full time after I have finished my level 3 or if to try and go into employment and study for my degree part time. I was wondering if I could find out what is the average pay rate for someone with a level 3 qualification and how much TA experience do you have to have to enable you to become a HLTA?
