Prospective Teacher FAQs

We’ve answered some of prospective teachers’ frequently asked questions below, about different teaching roles, their value, and what they involve.

Usually, teacher supply agencies will require you to submit your CV, after which they’ll fit you with suitable teaching roles that fit well with your experience, job requirements, qualifications and personality. Agencies can also help source accommodation for teachers who need to travel for work.

Supply teacher salaries are paid by the day, depending on the length of work. Usually, they earn somewhere between £100-£150 per day. This increases depending on extra specialities such as SEN teaching experience or additional vocational qualifications.

Once you find a teacher supply agency that you like, usually they will require you to send a CV and related documents in order to start the recruitment process.

A supply teacher does essentially the same as a permanent teacher. They require the same qualifications but work in various schools teaching a wide range of students. Supply teaching can be good for qualified teachers who want to work part-time or improve their work-life balance.

Supply teacher agencies connect professional Supply Teachers and Teaching Assistants with schools that require pertinent or part-time teachers. Agencies act as a trusted middleman between schools looking for teachers, and teachers looking for schools – and charge by the day.
