Pay cuts for Cumbria’s 3,500 teaching assistants will be less severe than they feared.
Have your say
How can anyone possibly think a TA job is unskilled? I'm studying communication and language impairment in children and it's effects on learning. 54% of the nation-wide programs used to help children develop communication abilities, and therefore accesss to LEARNING (vital, obviously) are delivered SOLELY by TAs. 26% of the programs are delivered by TAs and teachers together.
Care to argue with those statistics?
Well done Unison for fighting the TA's corner - what about the admin and other support staff in schools who are losing money but also work many long, unpaid hours!! :(
i sincerely hope that some of the ta's who are commenting here are not correcting my child's spelling and grammar!
