Types of contract

Permanent Work – Often schools will employ Prospero to find permanent members of staff for them.  Alternatively teachers working on a long-term basis covering a permanent vacancy  be may offered a permanent contract by the school.

Daily Supply –  This is the most flexible option covering absence. Daily supply will give you the opportunity to work in a variety of locations, which will enable you to find a school that suits your personality, teaching style and specialism, before committing to a more long-term appointment.

Short-Term Supply – Short-term work can run to up to half a term and allows you to gain greater insight into the roles and responsibilities of permanent staff members. Short-term workers need to take on a greater degree of responsibility for planning than a daily worker, and working in this way is an excellent route for less experienced teachers and support workers who want to get a taste of school life.

Long-Term Supply – Working in a post for half a term or longer, long-term supply allows you to take the full responsibilities of a permanent member of staff. Long-term teachers are required to make a greater contribution to curriculum planning and the life of the school as a whole.
