I have taken this year out to look after my daughter but had hoped to do intermittent supply teaching. However, it is near impossible to register with a teaching / employment agency at the moment unless you're prepared to work for as little as fifty pounds per day. This is the pay offered to those who, though wholly unqualified, are able to take your lessons (an issue in itself). In reality however, classes are most often taken by qualified teachers paid at this miserable rate. If teachers have any collegiality or solidarity there would be as much an outcry about these underpaid colleagues as there is about pensions. Where is the support or challenge to the cover supervisor pay rates being paid to fully qualified teachers?
