Good supply agencies in London? Any work in London?

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by albertdog, Jan 26, 2011.

  1. As I have said many times before, I have signed up with two dozen supply agencies in London and, even though I am a science and maths teacher, none of them have found me any work that paid, either day-2-day or longer assignments. I got to the point at which I was making 10 - 15 phone calls every morning and late afternoon. My references are good and all the agencies to which I applied accepted me.
    Repeatedly, I am told that: there is very little work about; schools and agencies only use teachers they have used before, etc.
    Are others having a similar experience? If not, could you share with us, which agencies are finding you work, and in which areas of London.
    I would welcome any hints as to what I am doing wrong and what I could do to improve my situation.
