Wonder is anyone can help me ? I have been working as a supply teacher since last September and previously to that a teacher on a year contract where they wouldn’t pay mps but unqualified rate as I didn’t have my QTLS which I gained whilst there . Before this post I was a cover supervisor and TA after gaining A DTLLS Qualification. I have been paid up to £170 per day on long term supply for a lead teacher post and £140 for a subject specialist teacher post . I have been offered a maternity leave post on MPS for 6 months with a school and I thought I should ask for MP2 but I now realise this is much lower than my daily supply rate ? . Can anybody advise what I should be asking for ? Do to being a mature teacher and gaining DTLLS 5 years ago and many years of employment ( non teaching ) can this increase my pay scale requests ? My Agency is saying this is up to me and they will just be taking a find fee ..
