Hi all, I've had a good search through backposts and have found some good pointers but would love a bit more up to date info. I'm looking into setting up my own LTD company in order to supply directly to some local schools as I find the cut taken by supply agencies to be unacceptable. I understand they can organise to pay me as zero hours but the hassle involved would probably deter them from using me therefore by setting up a company I'll be removing that element of hassle. I'm planning to go directly to a handful (maybe 4) local schools and have a meeting with the the person organising cover and text/call each morning to notify availability which should be every day. I only want 1-2 days a week. Feel confident to be able to sell myself as consistently outstanding for 10 years of teaching and very flexible as my mum can have my kids at very short notice. Are any of you doing this? Any lessons learnt you'd like to pass on? Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated as looking at sorting a DBS asap. Many thanks!
