Although this could go in the supply teachers threads I feel it is just as pertinent to put it here. If you look at agency websites they advertise posts and so you forward them a CV as requested. They then come back to you, sometimes weeks later, saying that the post has been filled but would you come in to the office to register. Oh and by the way don't forget to bring in (depending on the agency) £44, £50 or even £55 for a new CRB - no we don't do portability - Lancashire County Council schools have been told to reject ported CRBs. I suggest you do as I do and ring the office directly to enquire about the post and I will almost guarantee you will get the above reply. I am of course much too polite to vent my true feelings and politely refuse (honest).
