I really am concerned about the amount of unqualified teachers that are teaching in our classrooms. I have left my recent school because there were so many unqualified teachers, teaching,including the caretaker! I was advised by staff, including very senior staff that I should leave my post as the school was becoming a joke with the amount of non-qualified teachers teaching. There were times when teachers would refuse to support the TA's teaching as actually as the qualified teacher you are legally responsible for that classroom and not the TA. I supported my departments requests by refusing to have a TA teaching in the department and I'm glad I did. If you think that you are qualified to teach then get qualified, otherwise stick to being a TA. Any TA who says that they have got great reviewa from the Head etc is talking rubbish,they just go easy on them so that they can justify them teaching. I really do have a concern about unqualified teachers who are teaching and have seen time and time again. At the end of the day only qualified teachers can truly teach.
