Level 1 Teaching Assistant
The Teaching Assistant salary scale will obviously depend on which part of the country you currently reside, however most new full time Level 1 Teaching Assistants can expect to earn between £9,000 - £10,500 per annum with an average of £9,574.
If you are given part-time hours your pay will be allocated pro rata and in temporary roles the school or local council may set an hourly rate instead.
Level 2 Teaching Assistant
Again this will be dependent on the area of the country that the school is in, however a report in 2009 showed the average earnings in the UK to be £13,189 - £13,874 per annum with the opportunity to also earn a Special Educational Needs (SEN) allowance of around £1177 per annum (pro rata).
Again if you are given part-time hours this will be pro rata, however it is very rarely a school will offer an hourly rate for Level 2 Assistants.
Level 3 Teaching Assistant
Again this will be dependent on the area of the country that the school is in, however currently in the UK the average earnings are around £17,161 - £19,826 per annum with the opportunity to earn an SEN allowance of up to £1177 per annum (pro rata).
Again if you are given part-time hours this will be pro rata and it is extremely unlikely that you will find a Level 3 Teaching Assistant position paid on an hourly rate.
Level 4 Teaching Assistant
Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs) should typically be earning in excess of £19,000 per annum plus possible SEN allowances. Most Level 4 Teaching Assistants would be working full time due to the nature of the job.
