The benefits are endless!
There are loads of benefits to joining Secure Guarantee Pay! Read on to find out:
Variety

Supply teaching gives you the kind of variety that any other career does not. You can teach at a range of schools in the area you live in and get to know how different schools work. Variety is the spice of life and you really get that with supply.

Gain valuable experience

Supply teaching opens doors for you. Working in different schools gives you confidence and helps you pick up new ideas – essentially it broadens your horizons. Teaching a variety of students from different backgrounds in different schools that have different management styles and philosophies will also give you an edge.

Insight

Getting an insight into different schools and communities helps you decide what your long-term aspirations are. The more schools you work in, the more you’ll be able to identify what you want from a school, and what you don’t.

Networking

Working in schools on a regular basis allow you to get to know the staff there, this is great for support as well as widening your professional network. When supply teaching, first impressions count – so make sure you make a great first impression so that schools you like request you back.

Try before you buy

It’s a great thing to be able to identify schools you’d like to work long-term in – when you’re teaching supply, keep note of the ones you like! Autonomy Supply work allows you to skip the onerous daily planning and preparation that permanent classroom teachers are expected to do. You can experience the fun of the classroom without as much responsibility – this means fewer meetings, paperwork, testing and Ofsted.

Financial Security

Secure Guarantee Pay means you have financial security – something which supply teachers may not feel as in control of as teachers in longer term posts. We pay you whether you work or not, it’s part of our promise to great customer service and support.

So, there are loads of benefits to supply teaching on a guarantee pay contract – what are you waiting for?

From SGP to…

From SGP to…

So you’ve been teaching supply on our Secure Guarantee Pay scheme for a few months now. You’ve taught at 13 different schools in your area. You know what you like and what you don’t. So what’s next?

What are my options?

You’ve always got options when you work with us and as an SGP teacher, you have loads! The first is renewing your SGP contract, either in the same area or somewhere new, for example in a different part of town.

If you’ve enjoyed SGP but you think you’re ready to find a school that you could teach in on a longer-term basis, then find a long-term contract might be what you need. We’ll be able to help you find schools that are recruiting and get you set up to interview! Longer term contracts can range from anything from six weeks to a whole school year.

Permanent opportunities

If you’ve enjoyed teaching in England so much and you’d like to stay here indefinitely, then you could look for Sponsorship opportunities if your visa is running out. Sponsorship means a school would sponsor you to stay in the UK and teach here indefinitely – you’d become an employee of them directly. We can help you figure out whether this is right for you.

Don’t need sponsorship?

We can help you find a permanent role in a school, too. Explore other sectors Why not embark on a new challenge and work in a different sector. Special Education is extremely rewarding and has a range of benefits. Our Special Education team are on hand to help you get into Special Education as an LSA, SENCO, or Special Education teacher.

Daily Supply

There are other ways to teach supply without being signed up to a contract. Daily supply means you let us know each week when you’re available to teach and we find you the supply work on those days – it’s as simple as that. This is a great option for people that might be looking for something more part-time or flexible as you choose when you work. Whatever you’re looking for, we’re on hand to support you with your choices and ambitions.
