Types of work

Permanent Work: Often schools will employ Qsted to find permanent members of staff for them. Alternatively teachers working on a long-term basis covering a permanent vacancy may be offered a permanent contract by the school.

Daily Supply: This is the most flexible option covering absence. Daily supply will give you the opportunity to work in a variety of locations which will enable you to find a school that suits your personality, teaching style and specialism, before committing to a more long-term appointment.

Short-Term Supply: Short-term work can run to up to half a term and allows you to gain greater insight into the roles and responsibilities of permanent staff members. Short-term workers need to take on a greater degree of responsibility for planning than a daily worker, and working in this way is an excellent route for less experienced teachers and support workers who want to get a taste of school life.

Long-Term Supply: Working in a post for half a term or longer, long-term supply allows you to take the full responsibilities of a permanent member of staff. Long-term teachers are required to make a greater contribution to curriculum planning and the life of the school as a whole.

Overseas Work: There are now greater opportunities for teachers to use their skills and experience across the world at a range of international schools in a host of exciting locations. As the number of international schools increases so does the demand for teachers.
