Agencies . . . a response to one of their emails Regarding your comments on any difficulties that I may have in my life perhaps you should try being a supply teacher : no secure income, being sent to schools and subjects when you expressly stated you would rather not. frequently scapegoated when it goes wrong and we do it you as a favour, told lies by schools and agencies, pay repeatedly undercut, difficult and demanding work, unsympathetic agencies. Constant changing of staff no permanent professional relationships, new staff knowing nothing of your previous hard work or professionalism inseccant numbers of challenging children and having to repeatedly restart at new venues, agencies that can't secure your own subject or even any work, I could go on and on and on. This is why agencies should support people like me its why I am in the situation I'm in you and your ilk are responsible. Thanks anyhow and I remain available for work this week and next.
