    Default Teacher on Mat leave - can I do relief teaching at other schools?

    Hi,
    This question may be too specific to my employment, but I was hoping someone may know;
    I am a teacher, currently on 12 months maternity leave and my ppl payments cease in July. I will still have until the end of the year on mat leave but will have no income coming in.
    My question is: would I be able to begin causal relief teaching at other schools, even though I am still employed to return to work next year?

    You possibly could but it maybe against your contract I would check with who your having your leave with. A lot to weigh up too if you have to put Bub in care it will have to be a permanent booking usually 2 days is preferred and will your casual relief work be worth the cost of care? Could you go to the school your on leave from and ask to come back in the relief pool?

    A colleague of mine went to the principal as a courtesy to say she was going to do some relief teaching. I've not heard of it being an issue though.

    Definitely know of teachers doing this in Vic. Perhaps call the department to see if there's anything specific you need to do and tell your Prin (as they'll probably put you at the top of their CRT list!).

    I'm currently on mat leave and doing crt work. I'm inly doing it back at my school though, so much easier knowing how the school runs and knowing most people there. I'm in vic.
