Since the start of 2017. I've been a supply. Have found mainly long term work via agency A and mainly day to day via agency B. Last time I worked for A was May and the last time I worked for B was December 2018. After an extended "break" I am now looking for supply work again. Agency A, however, now appear to require a "character reference" from May to now, which I am struggling to provide. Agency B want me to go through the whole registration process again, including proof of address and two most recent references. I suppose one could be themselves and the other agency A, although I am not particularly comfortable with that. What to do? Should I be giving the names of schools I have worked "longer term" for? Or? Is this - the requirement to account for all of my time, paid or unpaid - a new necessity? It all feels very Big Brother to me.
