Inside the Mind of a Supply Teacher

Blog Cover Image

When schools are in need of staff and cannot fill their vacancies internally, they rely on supply teachers and teaching agencies to provide cover for various positions, including long-term and short-term, part-time and full-time. Every day is different for supply teachers – one morning they may be covering PE and then in the afternoon they are making sculptures in Art class! Working on such short notice and being in a constantly changing environment means that supply teaching can be a stressful job, and we believe that supply staff are often undervalued in society.

In celebration of National Supply Teacher Week - which usually falls on the third week of June - we conducted a survey to gain a little insight into the daily lives of our hardworking, dedicated supply teachers. As a token of appreciation for completing our survey (and for all of the fantastic work that they do inside the classroom), one of our supply teachers will win a £50 gift voucher*. The winner will be announced soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

If you are looking for a teaching job or support role – whether it be day-to-day, temporary or permanent – then please get in contact with us to find out how we can help your teaching journey.
