    Depends where you are on the payscale how long it will take you to get another post. If you are on UPS and looking for a standard class teacher role then it could (seriously) take years, and maybe you never get a permanent one again. If you are on MPS2 or 3 then you can probably get one for September.

    If it definitely much easier to get a post when you are already in a post, rather than doing supply.

    However doing supply for years will be better than having such allegations on your record, however nonsensical.

    Next application 'widen professional experience' is a good cover all.

    Many thanks - that is my concern - as am on UP2!!! Some serious soul searching this weekend - and keep searching jobs as an escape route.

    I'm on UPS2 and it took me about 2 years to get a permanent post, with a more usual reason for leaving. Others have never got one after leaving, ask on jobseekers, unemployed and supply forums, many will tell you the same.

    I would keep searching and applying, but try to stay where you are if you can until you get something else.
