Types of work

Permanent Work: Often schools will employ Prospero Teaching to find permanent members of staff for them. Alternatively teachers working on a long-term basis covering a permanent vacancy may be 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.

Overseas and Guaranteed Pay Supply Teaching Contracts

Here at Prospero Teaching, we offer a select number of guaranteed pay supply teaching contracts to our overseas teachers. Supply teaching is also known as ‘casual relief teaching’ back in Australia and NZ. As we have an abundance of supply teaching available, we can provide contracts (during the school terms) which guarantee candidates 5 days work per week! As a guaranteed pay teacher, if you don’t receive a booking you will still get paid – conditions apply.

Our aim has always been to provide the highest levels of service, managing assignments from one-form entry schools through to the largest primary/secondary/academies.
