‘When I completed my Primary PGCE, I didn’t want to rush into a job and get stuck somewhere I didn’t really want to work. Key Stage offered me the opportunity to get hands on experience in the classroom, as well as developing my skills in a variety of different settings. I’ve really enjoyed working for Key Stage as they always provide a very professional service to me and the schools I am going into. I have found lots of benefits to working on supply. First, I am able to envisage working in an environment prior to applying for any positions available. I am constantly developing the skills I’ve learned during my PGCE, and I am able to see how other people teach and adapt my own practice based on these observations.
I understand that some NQTs will be feeling daunted at this time as they haven’t secured a job yet. Don’t worry, there’s something for everyone. I prefer the day-to-day bookings, but I have been offered long term supply – so the work is out there. Last but not least, I always get paid on time!’
