The Perks of Being a Supply Teacher

Why be a supply teacher?

Being a supply teacher, like any teaching job, is by no means an easy task, however the pros far outweigh the cons. As we are placing individuals in education roles daily, we present our guide: Reasons to be a substitute teacher.

Constant Improvement

Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned sub, substitute teaching allows you to consistently grow as both a person and a teacher. Trying out different schools, years and even different subjects enables you to figure out what works for you and what doesn’t. Of course this also means there’s never a boring moment, as the constantly changing schedule will keep you on your toes.


Excellent Way to Gain Experience

If you’re new to teaching and unsure which path you want to take, subbing is the perfect way to gain experience and figure out what it is you want to do. There’s no better way to gain experience than by actually teaching, this allows you to figure out how classrooms often work, how to deal with more difficult pupils and what style of teaching you’re best at.

Gateway into Full Time Teaching

Still wondering whether teaching is the right career move for you? Substitute teaching allows you to experience what being a teacher is like first hand. Subbing is also flexible and allows you to decide your own schedule as you can decide which contracts you do/do not want.
