What would supply teachers think of this? Clearly supply need to be more competitive, and agencies are destroying the LA supply pools. So what if supply teachers had a different payscale, since let's face it, we don't really carry out the full duties of someone employed as a teacher, but could certainly be more competitive. What if something like this was done on the condition that the rule allowing cover supervisors and unqualified to take classes was abolished. Okay, less money for some people, not all though, but far more work on the whole meaning supply would be better off. Just thinking now, seeing cover supervisors go in for £50 a day, we could do that, but getting far more work than 1 day every 2 weeks. 1 day at £100 over 2 weeks or 4-5 days at £50 over the same period. Cut agencies out, LA charges £100 to schools, cheaper than currently what goes on. Just thinking aloud, and thinking of ways to make supply teachers more appealing and cutting agencies and cover supervisors or learning managers etc out. We need to start thinking outside the box people. OUTSIDE THE BOX.
