Hi just seeking other perspectives on my situation I am currently on a long term science supply placement which is not working out. The workload is extreme including 162 mock papers to mark with a fortnight deadline and being given 9 students to mentor that I am expected to see for 20 minutes a fortnight. I do not teach these students and have no information about them other than their names. Also 5 hours of mandatory online training, no notice observations with no feedback, in addition to drop in observations, a heavy expectation for general marking, parents evenings, mandatory training sessions I am not paid for and frequent parent evenings that go on until 7.30pm In addition HOD told extremely disruptive students in my presence that he got where they were coming from being taught by a series of supply teachers but he would be teaching them in September and they would have 'proper staff'. Has also agreed with students who have complained about me and shouted at me in a room full of staff when I asked him not to do this. He did apologise but the damage is done with that particular group who are a major problem for other staff. I desperately want to get out of there but have agreed to work until the 17th of July and feel guilty about not keeping my word and also sorry for nice kids who have to put up with appalling disruption and an endless round of teachers who come and go. Supply agency really unsupportive.
