Hi everyone. I know this might be a silly question but what is the maximum amount a supply teacher can get on furlough per week gross (before tax and NI deductions) ?
,Emmaree11 It is £2500 per month.
The zoom conference was interesting it that it indicated
1. We should get paid furlough for the holidays, because the furlough money is worked out over 52 weeks and not not 40 weeks. So this raises the question of umbrella and agencies not paying us for Easter for example, because according to the union is in theory is wrong.
2. The went a greater local network for supply staff, with a designated supply rep.
3. They also what to raise the profile of supply in schools through the school reps, in that teachers who are permanent and who have worked supply, recognise how had a job it is.
4. The are hoping that supply will be used in the 6 week holidays in the government tutor roles to help students catch up.
One of my agencies sent me this. It states how much per month and week you can get.
“The scheme allows us to claim up to 80% of your pay from the Government (capped at £2,500 per month/£576.92 per week).”
I think some agencies are probably pulling a fast one
Brixtonboy, we can always hope, not that I am expecting anything mind you.
The umbrella company as indicated that the furlough pay will continue through the six weeks holiday and the agency are still looking for tutors to do intervention work in September to help in the transition period and help people catch up.
Thanks, I did get furloughed but I only did because my neighbour is an accountant and she told me to ask them.
MademoiselleP that is good news and puts your mind at ease.
