Calls from schools start coming in early afternoon, into the evening and then into the morning. You will be contacted via our app previous to the day up until 9pm at night. For bookings we receive in the mornings, we will start calling from 7.00am.
When you work a full day you receive a paid half hour lunch break and will be paid for 6 hours. Some half days are morning until lunch time or they can be afternoon shifts. Three hours is the minimum you can be employed for. If you work during a lunch period, you will be paid for a half hour break.
Your six hour day consists of five hours of direct teaching and one hour of student supervision. So you can be asked to do yard duty for 15 minutes at recess, 1/2 hour at lunch time.
We require you to arrive half an hour before the starting bell and this is reinforced by the schools as they stipulate they would like to have the grades organised within this time. You need to allow time to have your documentation checked, find your way to the classroom and then organise teaching activities as required, find a cup of coffee, the photocopier, the yard duty timetable, etc.
If you are running late, please call the Agency and we will let the school know for you. Please call as soon as you realise you will be late so the school can make appropriate arrangements until your arrival.
