I have given up on decent treatment by the big ones- (umbrella companies- used as cover teacher- low rates of pay for GCSE teaching etc.) Overpromised, undelivered and worst of all being asked by a 23 year old SALES person stupid questions at my interview- after 30 year experience and also up to Deputy Head. Think of setting up a FAIR and ethical agency- that pays teachers properly and charges schools a fair rate. What would make you work for us! What should agencies be paying teachers ( midlands region) and what would make you want to work for me! So disgusted by what is out there at present. I do think that if teachers set up together we would do a better job for everyone concerned- who agrees?
