The SSTA is seeking views from members who are supply teachers after the Scottish Government recently announced an additional £45 million to support remote learning.
This second period of remote learning has raised new issues affecting supply teachers’ working and wellbeing without a retention scheme like there was in the first lockdown. COSLA is maintaining that supply work remains readily available and that there is a shortage of supply teachers. This is not what we are seeing from members who have contacted us directly to raise concerns. Understanding members’ experiences puts SSTA negotiators in a stronger position when seeking changes and improvements on behalf of our members.
We have sent emails out to members who, according to the information we hold for them, are registered for supply work. If you are registered for supply work and haven’t received the email inviting you to take part in the survey, please email to request the email be sent to you.
