Dutch term or phrase: onderwijs assistent
I mean a person assisting in education in higher education (e.g in a language lab), so not like a US teacher's aide, who is probably a student him/herself.

We seem to agree on Teaching Assistant.

disagree  Dave Calderhead: assistant teacher is an alternative name for a primary school teacher's assistant - such as my daughter, who I mention in my answer

teaching assistant

as you say,
both at university level (PhD students assisting with the teaching or supervision in teaching labs) and primary school level, assisting with lessons as a qualified primary school tacher's assistant.
My daughter has a qualification as the latter.

agree  CI95: with statement re university level. Had a TA myself at some point to help mark exams (US). Can't speak for the primary level but you seem to have it from the horse's mouth.
