General Supply Teacher - Primary

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Job description 
Teaching Personnel are working with a number of the primary schools in the Gravesend area and are therefore looking for general supply teachers to register for day to day short term teaching work. Working closely with a large trust of schools as well as a number of others primary schools in Gravesend and nearby the Medway area brings with it an increased workload and requirement for day to day cover. As the term continues, the amount of day to day work grows significantly in demand as schools find themselves inundated with planned absences. Coupling the planned absences with unplanned, last minute sickness, schools require supply teachers to go into school and cover for these absences on a general day to day basis. 

As a general supply teacher working through Teaching Personnel, you will benefit from regular day to day work in the Gravesend area. Schools dependent in conjunction with the LEA, pay is competitive and planning is not expected as part of the general supply teaching role in the main. 

Highlights of the general supply teaching position:

  • Opportunity to earn up to GBP650 per week depending on school, LEA and experience/specialism
  • Teach in a variety of primary schools in the wider Gravesend and Medway area 
  • Consistent teaching where schools often ask for the same teachers back providing continuity 
  • Plenty of work opportunities
  • Regular CPD opportunities with Teaching Personnel and access to an online diary and system providing full flexibility 

As a general supply teacher, you will have full flexibility over being available on a full time or part time basis. This role is ideal for qualified teachers of any experience looking for flexible teaching work to suit your individual personal schedule. This role is also ideal for teachers looking for an introduction to a longer term, more permanent position as we find general supply teaching can lead to a medium term placement if applicable for the teacher. 

Working with numerous primary schools, we find that a lot of the general supply teaching work can come through on a day to day basis reactively receiving calls from schools first thing each morning. We also get a lot of proactive and pre-emptive calls where schools will book a general supply teacher in advance which can benefit those teachers looking to pre plan childcare and personal schedules. 

If you are a qualified teacher looking for general supply teaching work in the Gravesend area then apply now for an immediate call back to register.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
