The daily rates for supply teachers employed by local authorities or schools at each STPCD pay scale point.
Supply teachers who are in a 'pool' maintained by a local authority (LA), those located through the school's own contacts, or part-timers who wish to temporarily increase their hours, are likely to be employees of the school or LA for their period of supply work.
As employees, supply teachers will qualify for the numerous protections and benefits that arise from such status.
- pay in accordance with and by reference to the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document or the School teachers’ pay and conditions (Wales) document.
- membership of the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS).
- redundancy payments (after two years continuous service).
- protection against unfair dismissal (after two years of continuous employment).
These rights are the same as those enjoyed by full-time teachers in the maintained sector in England and Wales.
