On a daily supply I faced a 30mins tutor followed by 6 lessons 55 mins for a 4pm finish. In a challenging secondary academy. The academy duly paid teacher rate 140. I asked a perm how they managed 6 lessons a day. She duly replied that although perms are contracted until 4.15pm no teacher would be expected to teach more than 5 lessons in anyone day. One of the 6 lessons actually ended up as formal exam invigilation. Again perms would not be expected to do invigilation as invigilators we’re employed. Now an unqualified cs might do all this on 60 day. As a teacher I have no problem teaching but see invigilation as something we agreed not to do. My point is as supply teachers do we just do whatever is expected and kerching take the cash and **** off. Or are we the same a qts perm teachers.? Have we been devalued are we seen as cs only. Do admin staff see any difference.? Seems we get screwed on daily pay and pension, and perception and status. Are we now also screwed by unqualified cover managers and perms attitude? Views please.
