I just spoke with one of my agencies who told me that it has been dead so far. Not much work, and he thinks it won't pick up until October. He reckons more schools have cover staff. So need to contact one of my older agencies that I haven't worked for in the last 2 years to see what is going on in the more central London area... Feeling a little worried. I had budgeted to be off in September, but not for October. Who else is waiting...?? What is the noise from the ground?
