Please could someone tell me the pay scale for Grade 3 Level 1 teaching assistant .
Hi, Not sure what you mean exactly in out LEA, you're either a grade 3 OR a level 3 (or grade/level 2/1) not a grade 3 level 1.
Pay varies from county to county, try looking on your local councils website.
I think they mean Level 1 TA, Grade 3 pay scale. It is probably about £15,000 if they are using the NJC scales.
Hello, I don't know what this grade means either but in my LEA pay is advertised as if you were doing the job full time with only about four weeks paid holiday. In reality you have to take more like 13 weeks holiday and work part time. This may not be the same in your area, but it is worth checking as I know lots of people who haven't realised this because they don't make it very obvious!
The only way to find out here, is to phone the LEA/ school and check what the actual starting salary will be!
Good wishes, Jill
32.5 hours pw = £16,806
37 hours pw = £19,600
that is top of level 3
