    Geography and English to 11-18 yr olds. I'm hoping something comes up this week :rolleyes: along with 4 others I graduated with; only one of us got a job. There is a real shortage in the North East.

    Wooops :oops: - if you're looking for an English teaching post I hope your c.v. contains slightly better English than your post. :wink:

    Good luck in your search

    primary - ouch!

    I would recommend that you get registered with some supply agencies ASAP, although there normally isn't much supply in Sep. Also phone the local LEA and see if they use a supply pool and get on that. Send letters around local schools the local schools/take them in personally to whoever deals with cover. If you can start doing regular supply at a few schools you can get a much better deal. If you are paid directly through the LEA you can normally put them down as your sole employer and avoid getting wrecked for tax as agencies will count as more than 1 and you will end up paying loads in tax. You can also build relationships up with the school/get to know some of the students - helps alot! It's unlikely that any jobs (either primary or secondary) will come out for Sep now (fulltime) so I would say get on doing some cover work and that can often lead to long term supply or even a fulltime position. Good luck!
