I know it's only just the start of the summer holidays, but with there being no supply now for at least 6 weeks (and most likely longer), what are people's plans for September and beyond if the current lack of supply continues? I was doing quite well Oct - April last year and had at least 1 or 2 days most weeks and often more, Jan-March I visited the same schools quite a bit and had got my name out there. But after Easter it has dropped so much that I will have been lucky if I did 10 teaching days in the entire summer term. I have been doing the odd few days as a nursery nurse which I quite enjoy and even though the pay is not great it is money (I have told the agency I get this with that I will do it during the summer if they have any). I'm really hoping next year the work picks up a bit or I get a full time job because I really don't know what I will do otherwise. My 16months runs out middle of autumn term so I will be applying for an extension. After that I have no idea.... What are other people doing/planning on doing? And other than signing on... which I'm not sure I'd be able to due to lack of NI contributions (do self-employed voluntary ones count?) and the fact that I will get paid for some work end of July and Aug for some work I did in June/July.... how else are people planning on getting by/earning some keep? p.s I know there's already a few threads on here recently relating to money etc. but I thought this had a new slant on it for peoples plans for Sept and beyond.
