What is a Teacher?

A teacher is a highly trained professional who will have chosen to specialise in teaching primary education, or a particular subject for secondary or further education. Not only do teachers impart valuable academic knowledge, they are also responsible for the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of children within their care during the school day. Teaching jobs offer many opportunities for professional development. Additional responsibility may be found in taking on head of department or year group roles, or becoming a pastoral lead. Positions within SMT can also be much sought after. Teachers must work well with both children, their parents, and the wider school community to ensure that children enjoy their experience of education.

Temp teachers may be required:

•    To cover short or long periods of sickness absence
•    For maternity cover
•    Whilst a permanent job is being advertised
•    To cover periods of jury service

Teaching assistants may also wish to work within Locum posts. At Globe Locums we have posts available in this field, too.

Teaching Qualifications

Teachers must obtain qualified teacher status (QTS) prior to working alone in a classroom. Many teachers will work towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), but others will train ‘on the job’ as part of a Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP). Working as a teacher means a career within a fast-paced and high-pressure environment. A common misconception is that teachers have a short working day and benefit from long holidays. The reality is that teachers spend many additional hours planning lessons and marking work, during evenings, weekends and holidays. Teachers must therefore be dedicated and committed to their career. Working with children requires patience, thoughtfulness and creativity; all skills that teachers will need for a successful career.

Teaching Job Salary Range

Newly qualified teachers can expect to start on a salary of around £24,000 per annum. This salary will rise each year for several years but will then only continue to rise with continued professional development or additional responsibilities. Teachers working within a SEN environment may earn an additional allowance of more than £2,000 per annum. Headteachers may earn over £100,000 dependent on experience.

Locum teachers can expect to an earn a higher daily rate than permanent members of the school workforce. Locum teachers might earn £100-200 per day dependent on experience and the specific responsibilities of the role. Schools in certain locations may offer a higher daily rate than others, and some Locum teachers understandably take advantage of this.

What does a Temporary Teacher do?

A Locum teacher will complete many of the same tasks as a permanent member of teaching staff. Preparing the classroom, talking to pupils, teaching lessons, assisting at breaktimes and dealing with any emergencies or incidents that occur are all part of the role. If taking on a leadership role, a Locum teacher will be expected to attend and even lead departmental meetings. Long term Temporary teachers may be asked to take assemblies, supervise school trips and liaise with parents or other schools accordingly.

However, there are some differences. Whereas a permanent member of staff will have spent a significant amount of time getting to know staff and pupils within the school, a Temporary teacher must quickly get used to many new names and faces. They must also be able to find their way around larger schools and use new technology including interactive white boards and printing facilities. The higher daily rate and the flexibility of working patterns make many Locum teaching jobs very appealing. Working within a variety of schools can also be extremely beneficial for professional development and experience. If you are considering a temporary teaching job, you can check out our available positions and read testimonials from our current Locum teachers.
