Aaaah the "free trial" finally reaches me...

  1. ...and gets a firm and resounding "sorry, but I'm not going to even consider opening that can of worms as I think it does none of us supply teachers any favours."
    So yep, what was once a cracking little agency in primary joins the bandwagon of doom.

    The 'Work for Free' society is obviously part of the 'Big Society' plan...

    Quite an interesting article, as are most of the comments which follow

    There is a legal challenge to the 'Forced Labour Scheme'

    http://www.publicinterestlawyers.co.uk/news_details.php?id=193

    There does seem to be a bit of a backlash

    Makes interesting reading
     
  3. If you feel you have the need to volunteer for a school, be an upstanding member of the community, get experience (if you do not have any) then absolutely fine,
    Offer your services to a school, however volunteering should have absolutely NOTHING to do with an agency.
    So much confilct of interest. Get volunteering through a recruitement agency! beyond the pale.
    Volunteering is fine but don't let agencies get involved.
    NO WAY
