Hi everyone. I graduated in July from university (3 year primary ed course). I'm starting supply work from September, whenever they want me. I had an interview/informal meeting and I've signed up with a supply agency. For me personally, I thought supply work was the best option for me because I still feel like I have a lot to learn and while I had positive feedback during my three placements at university, I really want to gain more experience before I have a class of my own. My worry is how often I will be working. I'm used to having a strict schedule and the fact that I can't drive is likely to really limit me I feel, in terms of what I'm offered. I have no problem with taking public transport and I know the area and the surrounding schools really well. Getting up really early is no problem at all. I just want to stay motivated and I've found this summer hard because I like working and learning. I was going to learn to drive this summer, however I haven't been well and ended up in hospital. I've since recovered and am back to full health, but unfortunately it means that I haven't been able to finish my driving lessons and take my test yet. Anyway, can anyone give me an idea of what I should expect when I'm doing supply work please and any advice? It's completely new to me. Also, if there is anything I can do before September to prepare can you please suggest it. I feel like I should be getting general resources together but I'm not really sure what I might need, so if anyone can suggest any good general resources I can get my hands on and bring into school with me, that would be really useful. I have taught years 1, 3 and 5 on placement. My worry is for example, if I'm asked to teach reception, year 4 or year 6 and I'm not left any work by their class teacher, because I've never worked with those year groups before and it's been two years since I last taught year 1 on placement. I'm going to have a good look through my old teaching files at lesson plans and resources I used. How can I prepare before September please and when I go into school, what should I be taking in with me generally? If you know of any useful resources, books, etc which can be used for a range of year groups, please share! Thanks. Sorry the post is so long. I'm just a little nervous and don't really know what to expect. The thought of going into lots of different schools (if they want me) is a little nerve wracking and I'm worried in case I'll be hardly working at all. I'd hate that.
