  1. Hi,

    Has anyone signed up to this?

    What are your experiences of guaranteed supply payschemes.... with supply being a bit iffy at the moment it sounds a bit too good to be true but I know there must be some reasons that the company are offering this!

    Any advice gratefully received!

  2. No, never heard of it. What is it proposing?
  3. You and they agree on a set amount of days you have to work in a week. They can send you anywhere, you can't say no but they will pay you if they don't have work on those days. You on call 7.30 am to 9pm..

  5. You have to be at their beck and call, you have to work only for them, and they can send you anywhere................

    No thanks. I wouldn't touch it.
  6. I was on a guaranteed payscheme 2 years ago with another agency and loved it. I was guaranteed 5 days a week and was offered work in different schools and areas. I am flexible anyway so it did not bother me. My agency did not find me work only once! and I was paid for that day :)) After one year they changed conditions (instead of paying 100% of your daily rate-when they did not find you work, they changed to 80% so I did not sign the contract).
    Hope it helps.
  7. You're obviously very highly thought of, it's a massive risk putting teachers on this contract so agencies only do it for the very best.
    The only problem is that no isn't something you can say, if they have work then you have to agree to it no matter what school or distance . They will still always try to make it as easy as possible though.
  8. So what do they pay?
  9. A pisstake from the king of pisstakers. Steer well clear, scum using the letter of the law to abuse their staff (allegedly)
  10. Basically legalese ******** and a rip-off! DO NOT SIGN THE dubious contract!
    "should a suitable position be rejected..."???????
