I guess I am just venting, but I am so sick of Agencies posting that they need certain roles to fill "an exciting opportunity at a wonderful school has a arisen - Imediate start! Excellent rates of pay, friendly qualified staff, free CPD, .... blah blah blah" So, that will be imediatly after we have gone through the resigstration process, harrassed people for references, carried out ANOTHER CRB check (at your expense) and expected you to haul your way into some city somewhere and OH! the job went to some one else on our books. The thing that makes me even more cross is not only the raised expectations, but the fact that non teaching friends seem to think that these jobs are real and why haven't I applied for it? BECAUSE IT DOESNT EXIST! It's another agency ploy to get your name on thier books on the off chance that some work will come in and they may get to you first. I am registered with 3 agencies, I don't feel the urge to work with any more. And no, I won't accept work as a cover supervisor.
