How much do supply teachers get paid?

Supply teaching is a great way to gain some work-life balance, but it can be a daunting prospect when you are used to a reliable, full-time role.

How are supply teachers paid?

Due to the nature of supply teaching, supply teachers are paid on a daily basis. The Agency Workers Regulations (which Engage are 100% compliant with) state that after 12 weeks in post, agency workers must be paid the same as any other teacher in the school.

How much are supply teachers paid?

In inner London, supply teachers on the main pay scale can expect to be paid between £110 and £220 per day. In England and Wales, the daily rate is between £100 and £160 per day. For up-to-date pay scale information, you can visit the NEU website’s ‘Daily Pay Rate’ tables.
