Teaching assistants are so undervalued for the amazing job they do. Quite often being responsible for the class.

TA are amazing and support our teachers so amazingly. But it is the individual children who need their support for whom they can be life changing. Time for reward and recognition that is meaningful.

I am a teacher assistant on £17,000 and I work just as hard as teachers, I have worked over time extra hours to provide study support and I never get paid for my extra hours. We look after other people’s children so how is TAs salary only between £15,000 to £19,000??!! No wonder why they are always short staffed
