The benefits of using a teaching agency to find work

Posted on June 9, 2020 at 1:01 pm

If you are a teacher looking for supply work, you may find that working for a teaching agency is a valuable route to employment and that it has many benefits to applying directly to schools or to the local authority.

There are a multitude of agencies to choose from and it is important to check the terms and conditions of the agency you are applying to before you agree to go on their books. One of the essential things to check is that the rate of pay is comparable with the pay scale that is offered by the local authority. Agency pay will probably be less but should still reflect the professional status of a qualified teacher.

One of the biggest benefits to working for a teaching agency is that they source the work for you and then put you in touch with the school or arrange the dates and times that you are required to teach. This saves a lot of time on your part filling in application forms and getting enhanced checks that are needed for you to work in school as the agency will organise all these things when you sign up.

The majority of agencies allow you to agree work dates and times that will fit in with your other commitments and will find work in a specified area that is in your location.
