  1. Assuming you are on a daily rate of £120 how much would you expect an agency to pay you (before tax). thanks

    My agency pays me half my daily rate whether I do a morning or an afternoon. Doesn't matter that the afternoon stint is slightly shorter than the morning stint, it's the same - half pay. However, it is an independent agency and as such I think it charges schools less than some of the bigger agencies so maybe schools don't quibble with them over the hours worked and the pay?
    If I were on £120, I would expect £60 for an afternoon.
  3. i work for the council and if I'm not working a full day then I get paid hourly at £21. I have to enter my hours onto a timesheet every week and can put in5 hours for a day, however many hours for a morning or afternoon and then 15, 30 or 45mins. Most school afternoons are 2 hours so I get £42. : )

    My agency and the local LEA assumes the school day is 6.5 hours long for supply pay purposes. I'd expect to get paid for a bit less than half that, say 2-3 hours depending on the school's timetable.

    £120 divided by 6.5 = £18.46 an hour.
  5. Everyone knows that 4 out of 5 lessons is "half a day's work", as far as agencies are concerned. So, in light of this, I'd say the 5th was also half a day's work. One thing is certain, you can argue the toss as much as you like, but "the bit before lunch" is most certainly not 4/5 of a day pay wise. ROFL if it wasn't so true.

    Sometimes I get half my days pay (which I only know as after tax with holiday pay) works out at £44, that is with a private agency.
    With the big agency linked to the LA I get just over £23 an hour. so could be between £46 and £56 depending on how long the afternoon session is.

  7. The to-scale hourly rate is your payscale point divided by 1265 hours. £120 reads like an "hourly rate" LEA, 5.15 or so hours, or else it is day rate about M2, but M2 is 23,295 annual, £18.41 per hour. M6 is £31552 annual, = £24.94 per hour=£161.80 per day.
    My agency splits the day 50:50 regardless of hours, so I would get £65 or £67.50 depending on which school I worked in.
  8. HAYS has been paying its supply teachers its so called "premium rate" of £100 per day max for the last 5 years! £120/day seems relatively good?
