Hi everyone... I'm currently in my final year of my degree and I'm considering a TA position. I have actually applied for a PGCE but I'm beginning to have doubts about whether I'd be able to cope with the workload and stress... therefore I am looking in to a TA position. Has anybody got on the job without specific NVQ qualifications? I've done 3 weeks experience in a school and i'm thinking of going back as soon as and doing more experience for as long as I can throughout the academic year. Do you think this would be helpful? I know some people who have got offered a job whilst doing voluntary work there so i'm assuming specific qualifications are not always required?
