Anybody supply teaching, or thinking about supply teaching, in Scotland should join this group. Join discussions on supply pay, working conditions and how to find supply roles.
I believe there is only one secondary school on Skye...
. . . . . . and approximately 12 Primary schools, some of them over 60miles apart . . . . I had to look at a google map out of sheer curiousity
KATELEE1.... not from Scotland. ......Supply Pay is poor, but ...
Not being from Scotland you'll have missed out on the shocking new pay rates for supply (started last August...): put simply, supply assignments of 5 days or less pay for no preparation time, @ increment #1 of pay scales, regardless of what increment you would normally be on. (Or increment #0 if a probationer).
Assignments of more than 5 days should be paid at your normal scale, and include paid preparation time.
Lots of threads on here about this...
Or if you're a member of NASUWT, they operate in Scotland as well as England (assume that's where you're from, sorry if not so) and will give info/advice.
Do contact GTCS about registration - they've always been very helpful to me on my own strange journey to Registration...
