Being a supply teacher has its ups and downs – by Sharon Wood.

Supply teaching can be a potentially isolating career. Flitting between schools, it is not always easy to build professional relationships. In much the same way as peripatetic teachers may feel somewhat nomadic, so supply teachers can feel as if they lead a migratory existence.

From here, you can learn about the pro and cons of supply work, discover how to become a supply teacher, find information on supply teaching agencies, uncover books on being a better supply teacher, and meet other supply teachers.
Ask questions, find answers and have a good old rant on the supply teacher support forum. With over 3,000 members, and nearly 20,000 posts, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for in our online supply teachers’ staffroom.
