Anyone contacted schools about work?

    Due to family commitments, I am not going to be able to continue evening tutoring over the next academic year (which is a shame as i've loved it). However, I know that with only two days to offer, i'm not going to find a teaching position (English).

    has anyone contacted schools directly about tutoring/supply/ad hoc teaching work and was it successful?

    Struggling to work out how to manage next year.

    Thank you :)

    I too would appreciate an informed answer to this question. Is it possible to offer day 6 provision for excluded students, for instance?

    When I went part time in anticipation of retirement, I contacted the local education authority to ask about tutoring pupils not able to attend school for whatever reason (eg illness). They were very positive and invited me to apply to work for them. In the event I became fully occupied with other tasks, but I did accept some GCSE intervention support work with groups of 6 pupils in a school where the deputy head heard I might be available and had my contact details. Also when I visited one of my old schools to help with lunchtime computer club one day, I was immediately asked if I would come in to tutor a girl who couldn't attend all mainstream lessons. I declined this one as I was actually trying to retire (a bit), but I suggest you make yourself known to places you'd be happy to work with.

    I’ve been encouraged by friends and family who work in schools to send a letter to the heads some keep lists of tutors.

    I will do this soon.
