I graduated in 2017 but still yet to take the skills tests so no QTS. As I've had time out I wanted to get back into it through supply before applying to do my NQT year but I'm really unsure of what to do. I know that you can't work longer than a term (I think?) With QTS but have spoken to someone recently who had a long term position doing unqualified supply who said the pay is good and tax isn't bad (which is another thing I'm confused about!) The thing I'm worried about is I'm a single parent and I have a 3 and 1 year old so will rely on benefit top ups to help with nursery fees but after seeing everything recently about universal credit and parents being left with no money scared the life out of me but I really want to get back into teaching. I appreciate any advice and thankyou for reading (sorry it's long).
