NUT Lobby of Supply Agencies

6th September 2015

The provision of supply teachers is now dominated by private agencies that cream off huge profits at the expense of both supply teachers and schools. This is an issue for all teachers as very many will work as a supply teacher at some point in their career. To highlight our concerns, the NUT is organising a national lobby of supply teacher agencies in London on Wednesday 28th October. This is aimed to be during half term, but of course this isn't the case in Leicester.

The lobby isn't just for supply teachers, so please put the date in your diary and consider taking part. Details of the venues and activities on the day will be finalised in the coming weeks and communicated to you, as well as being posted at: www.teachers.org.uk/supply where you can register your wish to attend.

In the meantime, please sign this petition to put pressure on Nicky Morgan to publicly acknowledge the haemorrhage of public money into the coffers of private agencies.
