Raise Teaching Assistants Pay

Petition Details

TA’s filled the gaps during the 1st lockdown. It was a crisis and they stepped up. Often teachers were working at home but the TAs were still in schools keeping schools running. “Now they’re being asked to step up again and do a teacher’s job – yet on a TA’s pay. It’s shocking.

Additional Information

TA’s are often under appreciated and looked down on. They want to do their best, and they often don’t want to say no. But they’re being put in a difficult situations, and this is causing added stress. Raise the salary. Just because they don’t have time out of the class to plan and attend meetings after school they however still perform the same as teachers-marking, assessing covering & most times robbed of just how much they do.
Covid has taught us that schools would be closed without them.
