I've read through threads on a similar vein, but my question comes from a slightly different angle... A couple of weeks ago I signed up with a supply agency - haven't been offered any work yet as the CRB check is still going through. At the interview the guy mentioned a particular school that is close to my home that he had recently contacted regarding offering them teachers on supply (they have never dealt with them before). I said I would be interested in working there if anything came up. In the meantime, this particular school has contacted me directly regarding a temporary short-term position they thought might suit me ( I had an unsuccessful interview there last year). I emailed the supply agency the next day asking them not to refer me to this particular school, I didn't give a reason. The supply agency emailed back and said they had already sent my CV to them. Where do I stand if I am successful with this temp post (the school said the would contact me soon)? Will the supply agency say they have recommended me and ask for a "seller's" fee? Hope this makes sense to someone? Would be grateful for any advice?
