So you want to be a teaching assistant?

So you want to be a teaching assistant. Here's the good, the bad and the ugly!

  • Obviously you get loads of holidays!!!
  • Every day is different.
  • You can be creative.
  • The days whizz by as you are so busy.
  • Fab teachers and support staff.
  • The hours.
  • The feeling you are helping.  Be it teaching the children to read, spell, add or just to be more confident and happy.


  • No days off when you fancy.  So no afternoons off for a hairdresser appointment or shopping trip.
  • Days are set to a timetable so might be strange if you are used to planning your own day/time.
  • The pay Boo!


  • Happily not much at all. Hurrah!
  • Holiday in term time costing the earth......It's not fair.  We should be entitled to a discount card.
  • Whispers *the odd annoying child* Not really they are all angels!
