Is my agency taking the proverbial?

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by Rosamicula, Jan 28, 2012.

  1. I am working in a severe EBD school in the home counties and my agancy claim that 120 quid a day is the most they can pay me despite the fact that I am commuting 90 mins each way to get there. I worked in FE before and have no idea what the usual rate is. Any advice would be very welcome!

    I don't think they are- I work in inner city London, full time long term for £122.50 per day.
    The 90mins each way is a nightmare- I used to do it when I was permanent and I was exhausted all of the time.

    Depends on the agency, and whether they're quoting the gross or net figure (probably gross). £120 a day's not the worst flat rate mentioned on here by any means. As a ready reckoner for scale pay you'd be paid £110 on MPS point 1, and £10 a day more for each additional point up the scale. If you're MPS 2 you're effectively being paid to scale.
