Substitution teacher, or Supply teacher as we call them, come in to replace absent teachers to ensure students complete pre planned lessons. Previously we have used any secondary subject teacher but if you have experience of Primary ie pupils age from 4-11 years then this is an advantage as you could then cover primary schools as well.
For an overseas teacher new to the UK this is a greater introduction to teaching beacause you'll get the chance to teach in a variety of schools and locations. It's also a very good way to secure a longer term role as supply teachers are often the first ones to be offered positions in a school where they have worked.
Whilst any subject is suitable and core subject teachers ie Maths, English and Science are well received, we've found that creative subjects work very well also,for example Art, Music, Physical Education.
If you like the idea of supply with all the variety and opportunity it offers then Id be happy to receive your resume and discuss it further.
