Hi, I'm new to the forum and in fact new to the profession. Completed my secondary maths pgce in june and only started supply teaching two weeks ago. I've been reading throughout this forum about how supply work is drying up and it's left me a bit worried as my plan was to do this as my only source of income for the next 2 years at least. So far in two weeks I've had 5 days of cover which isn't too bad. No work today though and the unpredictability can be a little scary. I had been told by all and sundry that due to the shortage of Maths teachers, I'd be in huge demand, especially in Birmingham where I live. Anyway my question was whether there is likely to be more supply work for a subject like maths or is it a myth that has been propagated only due to the apparent shortage of maths teachers nationwide?
