I am thinking of doing supply work from September and am wondering if any experienced or/and knowledgeable people out there can advice me. Do I register and go with a teaching agency or do I contact schools direct leaving my details with them? I do hear that supply jobs are scarce at the moment with schools preferring to cover with individuals in-house. Also what rates of pay would I expect-I do realise this would vary but an average amount of someone who is an experienced (UPR) teacher. I would be looking for primary (nursery to year 6) and in South Cumbria. Thanks in advance.
