At a Supply Agency interview recently the interviewer was adamant that their Agency liked to be very upfront and transparent with Teachers. (This sounded good) She then went on to explain that the way their Agency gets around the '12 week' rule is by giving their Teachers the Job Title of Cover Supervisor. She explained that as a business they had to make a some profits and because of competition from other Agencies this was the only way they could make their Services attractively priced to Schools so guaranteeing their Teachers work and a small profit for themselves. Now, while I appreciated her honesty I couldn't help but feel a bit conned, this is obviously one bit of legislation which is supposed to protect workers but, it is being blatantly manipulated. Of the 3 Agencies I went to, this agency actually offered the middle rate although all the rates were similar which makes me suspect that the other Agencies are doing the same. Has anybody else heard of this?
