Is it really worth bothering, trying to get supply, or any teching work, these days? Both agencies and schools seem to have descended to dispicable depths in their treatment of supply teachers. For instance: 1) Being sent to jobs that are then cancelled, leaving you with travelling costs. 2) Wanting repeated CRB forms for every school to which you get sent. 3) Being told that you will have a full day when you are only needed for a hour or so. 4) Being told that you will be paid as a teacher, only to be paid at CS rates. 5) Schools refusing to pay you because of some ridiculous and fabricated 'incident', such as 'you did not stick to the 'non-existant0 cover work'. 6) Being sent to schools miles away, so that transport cost negate any earnings. I could go on. So far, I have yet to make any profit on agency work; all of it has gone on on unecessary fares.
