Just wondering how many schools you work for?
How many days per week are you called in (and how many do you work)?
Is it quiet in term 4 when yr 11/12 finish up?
Primary or Secondary?
Melb or another state?
I want to work 3 days per week next year but don't really want to go back perm' just yet. (Too much of a work load with corrections and reports etc)

Hi I haven't done CRT for many years but I often employed them.
Term 1 is normally quiet and term 4 busy as this is when lots of teachers experience burn out.
Hard to get regular work at one school but not impossible. We always went through agency so I would register. This also means you get a look around lots of many varied schools.
This was in Melbourne for primary.

I do CRT work and permanent work. I work every Friday and pick up other days when I can and when they are offered. It is a good mix as I have a permanent income, including holidays, but I can pick up other days to supplement my income. I also don't do reports. :-)
Our school used to use an agency but rarely do anymore. A lot of schools near me would rather use their own bank of CRTs before going through Resource Ed or another agency.
I didn't get any CRT days in term 1. Term 1 is often slow though. I was offered two but couldn't accept them. We have a parent who does CRT days this year and gets offered most of them as she is already there. Very frustrating. I'm hoping to be offered more this term as my bills are mounting quicker than my income. I try to get a lot in term 4. I put half the extra pay away to use over Christmas and to bridge how there are few days in term 1. Oh, and keep some aside from each pay for tax.
Oh, I'm in Vic.

I'm in melb and usually work 2/3 days a week but all through 1 school! Term 2+4 are busiest due to report writing. I'm primary level

Thanks all. I am comfortable having some weeks no pay, but DH and I want to try and pay of the house loan so we want that extra cash. If I can get 2-3 days per week I will be happy. I would love to test the water next year, but am worried that I wouldn't get much work for weeks.

I work in SA, high school.
Last year, I started getting work half way through first term. Although it varied, I usually worked 2 or 3 days a week. There were times when I worked every day for weeks, and others where I only got 1 day a week for a few weeks. It was very rare to go a week without work.

Hubby is a secondary english/history teacher. Term one and four is always slow, term one everyone just got back from holidays so all fresh and eager. Term 4, yr 12 leave, so the teachers who teach them, suddenly have a lot more free time and take on casual classes...
Last yr hubs was crt, in term 2 and 3 he got around 5-6 days a fortnight, sometimes nothing for a week then two days the next. In term four he got called in 4 times the entire term (so rough)
He had his name down in about 6 diff schools.
Luckily this yr he got a whole years worth of work, but we are dreading next year >_<

Thanks all. I can do CRT in primary too even though I am only Secondary trained, so if secondary is quiet in term 4, that would help out. (Diamond eyes, does your Dh know this?)
