    True, however I refuse to be paid as an NQT as a 'cost saving' exercise when I don't believe that's why the agency are advertising as such. I reckon it's to kjeep their margin up

    Yes, of course. I can see exactly why you think a Mancunian accent is exactly the same as a Liverpudlian accent.

    Yes, anywhere 2 miles north of the M25 is the same place...

    Yes, I can move my car and find a new parking space, avoiding the swarms of teenagers crowding round, navigate my way out of the labyrinth of the school, search the surrounding area full of yellow lines, get back to the school, find the one available space all within the 2 minutes you've allocated me. Why does it matter I've never been here before?

    Of course I'd like to drive 30 miles back to the school with rubbish cover work, little parking, dreadfully behaved teenagers, the rude , sarcastic cover manager and be a Cover Supervisor for £50....

    This is a funny thread and I'm pleased to see it back.

    Something I could have said today.

    "I do believe you when you say that Sir normally lets you watch You-Tube videos instead of working and that you can leave 10 minutes early today because Sir said you were good last lesson"

    Please can I have nothing but difficult classes today, I'm bored! Ideally drama, music, RE or Resistant Materials or any class where its normally disorganised chaos, something I can really get my teeth into. The antidepressants are really beginning to kick in....

    It's ok, I love the fact work is thin on the ground. Gives me time to get creative with the half bag of pasta, tin of beans and other odds and ends in the cupboard for the next fortnights food.

    What there's no work today? Way to go super education salesperson. Look, I know you guys work hard to milk the nearest edu cash cow only for only our benefit, but today its all dried up. Don't feel bad, I wont take it personally, not all is lost whilst Im sat here waiting Ive taken the opportunity to shave my ear hairs, pick lint from my belly button and buff my shoes with it.

    To the TA:

    " Thank you for moving the child with behavioural problems from her individual work station where she was happily getting on with her work so that you could sit there to hear readers. No, no, don't get up, I'll go and sort out the problem now that she is disrupting the group of children you have sat her with."

    Is there any paper in this room that looks like it hasn't been cleaned/tidied for 10 years?

    You know...that stuff with lines on it that students write on.

    To agency B: Yes of course I will cancel on that current long term placement I have in the school down the road with Agency A to go to the school you want me to an hour away and full of challenging behaviour!
