After trying to register with supply agencies since qualifying in July (unsuccessfully) I have finally had an agency phone me to ask me to register as they have no other specialist teachers of my subject on their books and 'tell me' they are getting regular demands from schools for my subject. However as I am a NQT my daily rate will be £81. I am currently working part time on a maternity contract directly with a school, I am being paid on MPS but if I do cover work for the school I am paid about £110 a day which is my NQT salary divided by 195. If after my current contract ends and I do supply with them, even in the unlikely event that I work all 195 days of the academic year, I will earn an annual salary of £15795. I am assuming I accrue holiday pay although expect this is just the statutory minimum of 20 days a year? How can this be right or indeed fair? Of course beggars can't be choosers but I find this shocking, or am I missing something?
