I'm an NQT who has been doing supply on and off since September. One of my agencies sends me to particularly tough schools - they say that these are the only ones that need supply teachers! (I know full well that this is not the case). Having been put into a school last week that was in special measures (I did not know this at the time, until I checked their ofsted report later on), I rang my agency to say that the behaviour was awful and I shouldn't be put into schools with that severity of behaviour as an NQT. To top it off, I've have just been sent an email from them suggesting that I go on one of their behaviour management courses. I consider my behaviour management to be quite good from the supply I have been doing, but just because I can't cope in a tough school in special measures, I need to go on a course! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
