Working as a Supply Teaching

Posted on March 17, 2014 at 3:33 pm

Teaching is one of the most common professions in the UK. While a teaching career presents numerable advantages and opportunities, supply teaching has a number of benefits apart from the ones in a more permanent position. Unlike a normal teaching career, supply teaching presents a greater degree of flexibility in your working hours, as well as the time when you are allowed to take holiday. Supply teaching also means that you won’t be tied down to a specific school, or subject, which can be good. A supply teacher doesn’t have nearly as much paperwork, or targets, because of this, meaning that you can dedicate more of your working hours to educating our youth. Finding work as a supply teacher can be difficult, especially when you don’t have a permanent position with a school. During lull periods, you have an opportunity to supplement your official work with some tutoring work.
