Teaching assistant issue resolved

Following a bitter battle between teaching assistants and Durham County Council, a deal was reached in November with teaching assistants in recognised unions voting to accept a deal.

Teaching assistants are now being offered a much better deal than they were previously offered. This deal will see those whose pay is being reduced offered two years pay protection, as well as better support for TAs to gain additional qualifications and progress through the pay scales.
