I may have been wrong about the specifics of the pay scale. It is probably just a general pay scale, which also happens to apply to TAs. I really meant that I share the same pay conditions as the TAs at my school, so don't get paid for breaks and lunch hour. I've never looked into it to be honest. My job title is ICT Teaching Assistant and ICT Technician anyway, and other jobs advertised in primary schools here are same job title and pay on the same scale.
