Primary Supply Teacher

Job description

Are you a teacher due to be available following the Easter break?

Are you looking for flexible, short term work in primary schools whilst you perhaps explore another career path or avenue?

Teaching Personnel are working with a number of the primary and middle schools in the Dorchester area and are therefore looking for general supply teachers to register for day to day short term teaching work following the Easter break. Working closely with in excess of 10 - 12 primary and middle schools in this area as well as building relationships with further schools, we have found our day to day demand for work increase significantly.

Schools are finding themselves inundated with planned absences but also last minute reactive calls with sickness and so require supply teachers to go into school and cover for these absences. A number of our schools have a no cover rule, meaning that as a partner we receive all requests for supply teachers.

As a general supply teacher working through Teaching Personnel, you will benefit from regular day to day work in the areas of Dorchester and surrounding areas. The pay is pay competitive and planning/marking is not expected as part of the general supply teaching role.

Highlights of the general supply teaching position:

  • Pay range between GBP100 - GBP120 per day depending on school, LEA and experience and subject specialism
  • Teach in a variety of primary & middle schools in the Dorchester area
  • Lots of opportunities from Monday 19th April 2021
  • Consistent teaching where schools often ask for the same teachers back providing continuity
  • 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 as much work as that which suits the individual’s 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 & middle 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 Dorchester area then apply now for an immediate call back to register. Please apply advising on your preference and current situation and updated CV if possible. For any further information please contact Harry at Dorset Primary School.
