"Shortage of supply teachers blighting Fife classrooms"

Posted by Scottish Supply Teachers on September 3, 2016 at 8:35 AM

 

Sadly the shortage of supply teachers is the norm now in most Scottish councils. It was inevitable based on a series of blows:  The low pay supply deal done by EIS and Cosla, introduction of 32 period week to make teachers work to the last minute, reducing teachers number in schools to save money, SMT spread too thinly to provide backup when required, too much paperwork, no extra resources, funds or time provided but somehow teachers should change the whole curriculum and they way they teach are some of the reasons behind this shortage.

It is not even December yet when flu season usually starts. Teachers are exhausted, not only doing their job, which is difficult enough but also covering for others. Saving money is the only goal so who cares if our children are getting taught by subject specialists or just supervised day after day for months.

The $ttnglvn767 unequaled meaning delivered the likely effectuate level if obtained
with rude methods or victimised irregularly. Thanks to the Bodoni font methods of fashioning
the evoke and its combination with many natural combat-ready substances, the creators of "Titan gel" managed to achieve an telling outcome! https://titan-gel-vietnam.pro/

I've been surfing online greater than three hours as of late, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did,
the net can be a lot more helpful than ever before. https://goo.gl/maps/RLPFGxUQTms

In addition, i composed about home and so i understand your viewpoint.
A lot of statements in your article really describes the situation, but I think you still have things you should think of. http://bit.ly/2pVmLqe

I live in Central Scotland and can easily travel to 6 neighbouring council areas to teach either general or my qualified subject, in both secondary and primary schools. I am registered with all of these councils and only two of them seem to take time and trouble to contact me in order to inform me of supply positions. Can somebody tell me why councils are supposedly crying out for supply while I am qualified, experienced, registered etc and willing to help out at the drop of a hat? I get the impression that there is not the desperate need for work that has been well documented in the press, or maybe I am missing something.

I lived until recently in West Dunbartonshire and worked in a number of neighbouring authorities. The situation for myself and at least four other teachers I know got so dire that I ended up in the Highlands where, despite the expense of accommodation, I spent most of last year.
Now I am about to teach English to corporate classes in Budapest, where there is plenty of work.. What really irked me was the way the authorities were economical with the truth. They messed supply teachers about constantly yet at the same time the schools were crying out for us. I predict an even worse situation this winter: watch this space.
