I have seen a number of threads of people saying they are giving up full time posts for supply. This is a knew jerk reaction to the bonanza time that supply was last year and previous years with tons of work, I'm sorry to say this but there is no works his academic year, it is only going to get worse what with budget cuts, lesser absences for fear of redundancies, schools hiring less supply teachers, billions leaving permanent posts for supply, preference of either well known teachers or cover supervisors, doubling up, internal cover, the "snitching culture" of supply where others are, the stitching others up to get more work are all contributing to it being a really stupid decision. I have had very little work this year, only the odd day here and there, whereas last year and previous years I was completely inundated for day to day secondary general cover. Don't be a fool. Stay in your permanent job. There is no work.
