I realise that this seems to be a topic which has been discussed to death, but I thought it might be best to start a new topic rather than piggyback several other threads. I gained my PGCE in 2007, but I haven't done any teaching since (I've been working in publishing and science funding). I want to return to teaching and thought that supply would be a good way of finding my feet again before applying for full time jobs, but there seems to be a lot of pessimism around the level of supply work available. A lot of the discussion seems to be focussed on secondary supply work though and I haven't been able to make out a clear picture of how things look in primary, so... I am looking for supply work in primary schools in London. If any of the following makes any difference, I'm a man and I have a background in mfl, science, maths and reading comprehension development. I would be very grateful for any thoughts on how likely it would be that I could get enough work to live on during the summer term, with an eye to applying for permanent posts in the autumn.
