How can we help?
Building up your confidence and skills through supply roles can be the perfect way to help find your feet without having to commit to a permanent position. With the proportion of teachers remaining in the profession after the first few years decreasing rapidly; the stresses of teacher workload are clearly a factor for the failure to retain those early career teachers. This highlights the positive elements of supply teaching as the workload and pressures are not the same as permanent teaching roles.
Supply teaching offers you the chance to expand and build on your experience – it can be as flexible as you like. It gives you the opportunity to understand how schools offer a variety of different experiences whether it be behaviour management, SEND opportunities, more community-based curriculums, or EAL challenges. These are just some of the many differences within schools that you may find. You may find that you become a specialist yourself in one or more of these areas allowing your career path to take a different route – all because you were able to experience a variety of approaches as a result of supply teaching.
The longer you are in the role, the better understanding you’ll have of whether the role is suitable for you. Remember, gone are the days that supply teaching was for teachers who ‘couldn’t obtain permanent jobs. But, for those who choose it as a lifestyle choice in order to find the right role for them!
