Supply teachers are recognised as particularly important in ensuring continuity for pupils in terms of effective teaching and learning.
For many newly qualified teachers, supply teaching provides and introduction to the authority and helps to establish a body of practical experience, often in a range of schools, which will support applications for permanent appointments.
