Supply Teachers' Survival Guide, Paperback

Supply Teachers' Survival Guide Paperback


Supply teachers are increasingly essential to the education system, yet they all too rarely receive adequate support or specific training.

Here experienced supply teacher Glen Segall provides a practical handbook covering all those things that he wished he'd been told when he started.

It provides full and up-to-date information on the qualifications you need to be a supply teacher, whether or not UK-trained; supply and supply agencies; securing work and your legal status as a supply teacher; supply teaching as a career - short or long term; educational provision in England, Wales and Scotland; government local authority and school initiatives such as Excellence in Cities.

It tells you what to do when you first arrive at a school; how to fit in with the way the school works - including the staff room; how to operate in the classroom and keep the students learning; what you need to know about the curriculum and your position regarding homework.

There is a guide to terminology, a list of useful organisations such as the GTC abd even guidance on remuneration for your work.
