i think learning assistants or pupil support assistants should get the discounts if there are any, they are the ones who do all the hard graft and the teachers take all the credit. L.A or PSA do all the prep, assist the more demanding children and do ALL the cleaning and the marking and filing
Don't know of any - never heard of any.

Thank you for your reply :-D
People are always waiting to jump in with the harsh comments. Like a pack of wolves. This is the hukd COMMUNITY but there is no sense of community.
And nope, not really sure of discounts for teachers but no doubt someone else will know.

It can be very upsetting. Ignore it.
I see it as a form of bullying. Cowardly people making unnecessary comments from behind their computer and phone screens. 
All the best to you laudora8.

I agree that teaching assistents should get discounts because they work … I agree that teaching assistents should get discounts because they work very hard too, just like teachers do! This post was about discounts and offers not about jobs. Just like people who work for the NHS get discounts just thought teachers might want to know whats avaliable to them.



Assistents?

Really?

You've just thrown your toys out of the pram because people didn't agree with you.
I'm a teacher at an FE college, as such I have a .ac.uk email address and can get associated discounts at places like unidays (£5 Spotify) and software4students etc.

I take it you're taking the pee?

So a teacher who has to plan for all the children, mark all of their work and ultimately be accountable for their progress (good or bad) doesn't do as much as the TA who turns up and maybe sets a few bits up for the lesson then helps with 1 group or 1 child?

I've never known a school where the TA does the marking.

I've been both a TA and a teacher, a teacher is probably 5 times the workload of being a TA with a lot more responsibility involved.

Don't get me wrong I value my TA and the work she does is fantastic but to try and say that they do all the work while the teacher takes the credit is simply ridiculous.

Are you new to the Internet?

I was pointing out a mistake you'd made, I think that was pretty tame to be honest
