Supply rate or contrac?

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by Shabas, Jun 14, 2011.

  1. Probably a daft question but haven't done supply for a while. I have just been offered a job at one day a week. Am I best to negotiate 0.2 contract or go on a daily supply rate? I am on UPS 1. Many thanks for any responses. I am meeting the head and need to negotiate the best rate!

    It depends how long you will be doing it. Initially it is best to be on supply, though this does depend on LA rates as some have become more stingy. After about a term I think, it was better for me to go onto contract due to holiday pay. Remember you wont get sickness pay as a supply. A contract also gives you employment protection in terms of ending the job. ie some notice instead of just telling you not to turn up the next day.
