If you are serious about the use of unqualified staff to cover classes you have to do more than set up a website (not that it's not a good idea). Record times, dates and incidents and send the information to the GTCS and to your MSP. Casual bypassing of the legal requirement that classes are taught by qualified teachers is serious and must be highlighted.
I have never witnessed this, but the people who have, have been encouraged to report this to their union. We, at Scottish Supply Teachers, are not omnipresent.
I just think you need to be careful about repeating stuff you don't know for sure. I'm not intending to call anyone a liar but sometimes Chinese Whispers can exaggerate the truth . If this can be documented, it should be trumpeted to the heavens because people need to know the impact of current changes to help assess those proposed for the future. Anyone who can document this shouldn't be sitting on that information because the insistence of qualified teachers is one of the strengths of Scottish education and we cannot sit by and lose it. (Sorry, that's ranty but honestly not aimed at you or the website - just that we all need to step up and make a fuss)
I agree. I'll see about that getting changed.
You might need to take that up with disguntledaggrieved on the Supply forum.
I think I did...
. . . . .perhaps not quite as forcefully as you have done on this thread.
I do tend to hone the rant each time I deliver it!
