At The Supply Room, we truly believe that knowing your Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) rate doesn’t just give supply teachers the power to speak up for fair pay, but also guarantees you get the recognition you deserve for your skills and commitment.
We understand how important it is to have clear and fair compensation to create a supportive and motivated teaching community and that‘s why we’ve included a AWR Daily Rate Calculator on our website. We update it annually to match current pay scales – it’s a handy tool for supply teachers!
What is AWR?
The Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) were introduced in 2011 to provide temporary agency workers, including supply teachers, with certain rights and protections. The primary aim is to ensure that agency workers receive equal treatment in terms of pay and working conditions when compared to permanent employees.
How do I qualify for AWR as a Supply Teacher?
There’s a few things to keep in mind to qualify for AWR. The key factor is wrapping up a 12-week qualifying period with a specific school. Your clock starts ticking when you kick off a role, and the great thing is, it doesn’t have to be continuous. As long as those qualifying weeks fall within a 12-week reference window, you’re golden!
