I’ve got an agency I use very infrequently. They’ve called today to ask if I’m available for work tomorrow. Excellent, I think, I can work tomorrow. It’s at X school, half a day, cover supervisor.
I’m a qualified teacher. I’m being asked to spend an hour each way travelling (spending about £7 on transport costs) do half a days work – exactly the same work I would do as a supply teacher – but for half the money I would get as a supply teacher.
I turned it down. Do you blame me?
