Whilst we have made clear to all schools we are here the need for our service may be limited and your opportunity of earning will also be too. As such you could also consider looking for further assistance from the Government by way of credit. Further details can be found here. The rate of Universal Credit has now been increased so that it is in line with the rate of Statutory Sick Pay.


We understand and appreciate the hardship the closure of schools will cause to all those workers in the education sector and we are keen to ensure you treated fairly and equally to all other temporary workers. With that in mind there are two petitions you may like to consider putting your name to put to government.


Click here is you would like to : Pay long-term supply teachers and support staff during mandatory closures.


Click here if you would like to :  Pledge for financial help for agency workers as yet not covered by any Government funding . (ie. 0hour contracts workers.)

Cover Teachers powered by Class People remain operational to assist anyway we can, so please don’t worry in silence give us a call or email and we will offer you all the support that you can.
