UNDER-RATED - relief managers and relief teachers are the backbone of the efficient running of a school. After all the programming to get teachers allocated to classes and kids in the correct class, the responsiblity the make sure that every class, every period, every day has a teacher in front of them is that of the Relief Manager.
It is sometimes a job that goes unrewarded and little thought given by the administration when the school is functioning well.
After more than 10 years involved with a school as a Relief Manager and close to 40 years as a teacher, I am very aware of the problems and pitfalls that befall a relief manager. Hence this site, to try and make the managers job just a little bit less stressful. Put jobs online and tell your relief staff to register. It takes less time to add a job online than it does to start ringing around. Once you are established, relief staff will be ringing you.
There may be some that use a relief agency - problably expensive - everything here is free until July 2021 (no payments necessary) and then it will be around $299 per year for schools with over 1000 students and less for schools under 1000 where we may decided to base the cost on the number of students.
So, register your school (create an account - its FREE to register) on this web site (registration link at the top of the screen). After registration, you will find more menu items appear and lots of useful help and ideas. Also, encourage your relief staff to register as a member. Menu item -'Relief'. this is a database of potential staff that you can view and see what skills they possess.
This site is all about lessening the amount of work required by the relief manager.
