Job description

What would a typical day as a Supply Teacher look like?

  • First and foremost, your consultant would contact you to arrange the booking. They would send over a booking confirmation, to confirm all of the details i.e. School Address, Name of School Contact, what you should take with you and any other information you’d require such as Subject/Class information.
  • When arriving at the school, you would need to present your DBS certificate and a form of ID before being introduced to your contact and being shown around the school/to the class.
  • All planning/work is provided and you would take it from there!

What do rates of pay look like for Supply Teachers with Teaching Personnel?

Day to day supply is typically between GBP115-GBP130 per day, dependent upon experience. For longer term positions, this is negotiated with yourself and the school but would generally be paid to your teacher scale.
