Frequently asked questions

  • ​The amount you can earn as a supply teacher can vary depending on factors such as location, experience, and the type of school you are working in. Typically, daily rates for supply teachers range from around £100 to £200 per day. Some schools may offer higher rates for teachers with more experience or for those working in areas where there is a shortage of supply teachers. To find out more about what we can offer, why not drop us a call at 0800 026 9222 or contact us here.

  • ​As a supply teacher, you may be eligible for certain benefits such as pension contributions and holiday pay, depending on your employment status. If you are working as a PAYE (pay-as-you-earn) employee, your employer (the agency or school you work for) is responsible for deducting taxes and national insurance contributions from your pay and making pension contributions on your behalf. This is why we are keen to ensure you are set up as a PAYE candidate. If you are working as a self-employed contractor, you will be responsible for paying your own taxes and may not be eligible for benefits such as holiday pay.

  • ​A good recruitment company should provide a range of support services for supply teachers, including help with finding work, support with your CV and interview skills, and ongoing training and professional development opportunities. They should also provide clear communication about assignments, rates of pay, and any other requirements. Step Teachers unlike most agencies offer a benefits package in Step Perks, find out more here.
