At Apple A Day, there are four types of work that we can offer you:
This is the most flexible option. You are offered work in a variety of schools on a day to day basis. Some bookings may be made with you in advance and some may be booked via a call in the morning. This is a great way to see a range of schools and year groups. It is also enables you to get a taste of what a school or year group is like before accepting a more long-term appointment. It is also a great way to become known in local schools before applying for a position.
Short Term Cover
An extension of daily supply, lasting up to 12 weeks. This would allow you have a more active role within the school in regards to planning and responsibility. This is great for teachers who are looking to gain more experience of school life or who want the comfort of guaranteed work for a set period of time. Pay will reflect workload and be discussed before both teacher and school agree.
Long Term Cover
Working for more than 12 weeks, you would have the same entitlements as a class teacher (including your daily rate). You would also be expected to make greater contributions to school life and curriculum planning. Please see AWR for more information on your rights.
Apple A Day also work with schools to recruit permanent members of staff on their behalf. If you are interested in permanent positions do let us know and we can put you forward for any suitable positions that come up. Usually this involves attending an interview and a lesson observation before the school make a decision.
