Where are all the usual supply teachers gone.....? Are you finding that you are loosing out to Teachers who have taken voluntary redundancy or early retirement and are now only working to add to or top up their various incomes? I am now meeting more and more experienced highly qualified teachers on supply having either taken early retirement or voluntary redundancy. In a time when work is scarce and for those who rely on supply as their sole income this is not good news and I fear that those who I used to meet on a regular basis have had to find alternative work to pay the bills. The flooding of the market with ex teachers is now diluting work opportunities for those who need the work the most NQTs and the loyal band of supply teachers that supported those teachers in the past. Where is the loyalty from the Agencies to support those who need the work the most?
