Best way to find supply work?

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by -cadburys, Feb 18, 2011.

  1. Hello there,
    What is the best way to find supply work in the UK?
    Call into schools or register with an agency?

  3. I think it all depends where you are, and your personal approach.
    Most likely wherever you are, finding work in future is going to be very hard, because there is an ever decreasing amount of work available for qualified teachers.

    Selective assassination of any permanent staff who teach your specialist subject within a 20 mile radius of your home ;-)
  5. I live in an area where there is little work from agencies, but I found work sending out a CV with a covering letter. I sent out approximately 30 letters and only got got one bite, but they are calling me almost everyday now [​IMG]
  6. Demand to see the headteacher and tell him,
    " Hey me o'l matey mate u can't getout for nowt and if u'v want more TA cover ten I'm u'r man me o'l boy. I is got i GCSE grade G in de maths but I can count up to ten veally well... I's is veall cheap and will accept £7.00 per hour.!" Me no qualified bu me has de quality u know wot I mean??? I got interview at daily mail/mirror i fink and de man say how much u is a saving de school by TAKING ME ON?[​IMG]
    Now rap it out with the correct breathing exercises and rests?
  7. Do you mean you sent it directly to schools? I'm moving to the North West region in May and want as much supply work as possible. Really nervous now about how much work there'll be.
