You’ve heard the rumours, after so many days of supply work you suppose to get a contract. How exactly does it work though?
It matters which sector you are in. There is one set of criteria for youth sector and a separate set for adult sectors.
Getting a Replacement Contract
There are 2 ways to get a replacement contract
No current contract:
If you as the supply teacher have no other contract:
A teacher has a planned absence of longer than 216 teaching hours. This includes parental leaves, leaves of absence, sick leaves due to planned surgeries, etc.
Current part time contract:
If you as the supply teacher have a part-time contract with the centre
If there will be a known absence of 25 teaching hours or longer the time will be added to your percentage.
Replacement contracts are paid at a teachers scale as opposed to hourly or substitution rates.
