Advice on becoming a TA
I'm currently working as a care assistant supporting adults with learning disabilities and have volunteered at a SEN school- only for 4 weeks as my work rota kept changing and I was struggling to get myself to and from the school as I live in the country side and don't drive.
I am hoping to move back to a city at the end of summer and pursue as career as a TA but I don't have any teaching qualifications.
I hold a degree in filmmaking (pointless I know) and have had spent a little time in a school.
Will my experience as a care assistant be enough?
We have a lot of temp ta’s at our school it may be worth temping for a while to see whether it is for you.
I am a TA and I love it but it is v v different to anything else I had done before.
I would say being a carer is probably a good foundation for patience level. 😂
