Long term unemployed teachers to be given preference?

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by Phillippo, Nov 11, 2008.

  1. On BBC radio 4's TODAY Programme, David Cameron talked about small firms being given NI tax incentives to recruit those who have been unemployed for three months or more!
    What about all those 13000 or more ( as another forum has indicated) qualified supply teachers desperate for some work?
    Should'nt schools be given extra funding to recruit all those trained to teach but now find themselves UNEMPLOYED long term? Such a waste and national scandal!

  3. What a good idea!
    Afterall schools are now "small businesses" proud of their budgeting with well paid salaried bursars on permanent contracts.
    There are too many unemployed talented teachers out there...and this Government must kick start the system by firstly making sure that every class is taught by at least one qualified teacher.
    Far too much money has already been spent on armies of TAs, administrators etc
     
  4. Wonderful idea but will DAVID CAMERON RENEGE ON WHAT HE ACTUALLY SAID?

    Ah yes, but in Mr Cameron's world it's small firms who are the powerhouse of the post-recession economy.
    Schools are in the public sector, and therefore need punishing.

    Problem is many of us on supply and M6 or above and too expensive to employ in a permanent post.
    Not only that but, if applying for apermanent job in a school in which we are on, or have been on, supply then the school also has to cough up an introductory fee.
    So it's all a bit rubbish.
    A school that doesn't know us won't touch us as we're too expensive, and a school that knows us and we're doing well in and may have been on long term supply and settled, also won't touch us as we're even more expensive!
     
  7. A small fiirm?
    I wouldn't work for any b8888y agency!
    Possibly a 2nd hand car dealership,maybe, Cameron probably loves those.
