    Hi all
    I just wondered how much i can expect to take home from a day of supply. I am an m5 teacher (although that doesnt necessarily mean I will get paid much!) but after tax etc what would I be expecting to make for a day?
    Thanks

    It depends.

    Agencies tend to pay no more than about £150 a day maximum. From that, your NI, tax and employer's NI have to be taken and a processing fee.

    Ends up at about £100 a day. Of course that "includes" your "holiday pay" and there's no pension, nor sick arrangements either.

    This, of course, assumes you get work as a teacher, you might get work as a cover supervisor instead and that would give a take home of about £70 a day.
     
  4. You would be VERY lucky to get this much.
     
  5. Just what I was thinking. The going rate here is between £90 and £120. But we do get 12% holiday pay too.
     
  6. I'm M5 and I get 130 a day as a supply teacher. My agency offers CS work at 65 a day, which I have refused.
    Like the insurance adverts tell us, shop around and see what is the best rate you can get.

    around here, Hampshire. the going rate appears to leave about £80 per day after deductions. I work on BR tax rate for agency as I would rather over pay tax and get it back than get a big tax bill to pay in the Summer when I am uber broke!
     
  8. Down here in south west, agencies I work for pay all teachers the same regardless of experience and top line before tax etc is between £90 and £101 :( I'm M6 and if I work direct for schools and paid by LEA I'm paid to scale, which is considerably more. Trouble is majority of schools down here only use agencies, I have 3 schools contact me direct but days are few and far between for this as I am at the bottom of their lists at the moment. I sent my CV and covering letter to about 25 different schools in April and only got the 3 replies.

    Hi all
    Thanks for your replies - I have two agencies who have said they will market me as £120 a day to schools as any more and the schools wont pay. I have said ok to cover superviser work as a last resort depending where the school is as I figure some money is better than none!
