    But now they have 'Supply Cover Supervisors', no need for anything apart from a pulse.

    If I wanted a shower fitting. I wouldn't call someone who planned to start their plumbing apprenticeship in a few months.
    It's the same thing!
    Don't let it put you off. Behaviour management is hard at the best of times with years of experience.

    Sorry you were put in that dreadful position, the school has not been fair to you at all.
    Maybe you should consider getting some experience of schools as a supply teaching assistant. My niece was thinking of teacher training and that's what she did to help her decide if it was right for her. I also had several graduates working as TA's in my classroom over the years who signed up with agencies for the same reason. It's a good way to see how things are done in schools and maybe pick up some valuable tips.
