I am a TA workng in a secondary school...been here for 13 years. My responsibilities and role have grown considerably: Developing and delivering lessons for 3 Nurture groups, life skills, home cooking Arts Award.Lead IV for home cooking. SEMH sessions with very vulnerable students. I am a LONE worker in all these aspects !The positives are I love my role, I am capable of fulfilling my role,I am given planning time. As well as the responsibilities mentioned I run and work Nurture clubs for breakfast and break and lunch duty supervision twice a week and homework lunch club once a week.Meeting outside professionals and parents are also an expectation as well as Boxall assessing,ELSA assessing. After asking for a job review as my role seems to be running away with my TA pay grade I have been met with nothing but patronizing obstacles. I am furious. My role is apparently within the parameters of a TA ,given my job is unique within this school it is difficult to compare to the HLTA'S here who do not have nearly the same responsibilities as myself. I am looking for some kind of leveler here from other professionals who may be able to relate to myself. Here I have three choices- put up with being stuck at point 22 of a TA scale. Let my beloved role be taken up by others ( a logistical nightmare for the SENCO), and go and work elsewhere. My performance management has not been completed for years and I have no recent job description,2011 was the last ,when my role was much different and I was actually supporting teachers , not delivering my own SOW.
