I'm starting day to day supply after the holidays, but really hoping that it may lead to a permanent post or at least a long term contract. Reading posts on here about agencies charging finder's fee etc. and a bit confused. If a school I am supplying in have a long term contract/maternity cover - will they really continue paying me on daily supply rate? Is there any circumstance in which they would put me on a contract? If a school I am supplying in have a permanent position and offer it to me/ask me to apply - does the finder's fee thing still apply? What about if I apply to maternity cover/permanent posts whilst doing supply? I'm assuming in this case that there is no finder's fee for the agency? What if I apply off my own back to a post in a school I have done supply in?
