Beware of all of them. The main agency I have been working with has now started to pay me £40 less than we agreed, just like that! I complained to them only to be told that they have to work with the schools' ever decreasing budgets. If they can charge a school less to get the business, but then take a teacher's hard earned money, then they are certainly not at a loss as they are recouping their earnings by undercutting us. I was offered £5 less than I got in 2005 to work as an NQT for my last two jobs. It just isn't on when someone is experienced and a specialist in their field. It looks like most of them are corrupt and I would like to know if someone works with an agency around Manchester who they love. Please let me know who they are.
