I need some advice. i only want ad hoc supply - I need some more money to cover the bills, but I don't want long term, nor to work everyday (due to family medical issues/ appointments etc.), so I'm looking at supply. I'm a UPS3 teacher... One agency said they could offer no more than £120, the other that they offer EVERYONE on their books £100 per day in order to get me work - they say the school's won't pay more (yet reading on here, it's them that would get less if I was paid less). I've had three jobs, one at the end of July and two this week. I was given no planning for the job today. I spent more time yesterday sourcing plans than I did when I worked full time (due to not knowing what resources there would be, nor knowing the children or their levels. is this right? My pay, once the childcare costs + petrol costs are removed is about £30-40, so yes I'm better of, but it seems disproportionally low for what I'm doing. I'm not expecting supply to equal my UPS pay, but I have so far been placed due to my experience - difficult schools and no planning. They want my experience, but don't want to pay for it. PLEASE does anyone have any advice? Or do I just need to suck it up?
