Re: Substitute teachers pay

Yeah, that's fantastic. Do you speak one of the local languages? That would probably have a greater effect on your expected salary.

Sorry but your chances of finding work here are zero. Swiss schools employ Swiss local qualified teachers.
Not true. I work in a Swiss school and have many non-Swiss colleagues.

Re: Substitute teachers pay

Your best chance is to approach private schools in your area to see if they want you to organise football training/club, after school, lunchtimes or week-ends- or even during holidays. Good luck.

Re: Substitute teachers pay

OP, please update your location then. When you say here, your location is Newcastle, but you keep talking about working soon in Switzerland, so it is a little confusing.

If you will be coaching here, even pros, I would still start with local language lesson, the transition will be smoother.

Unless you are a trained teacher and your degree recognized here, subbing will be very hard. I'd try private schools. For local state schools, you won't be accepted unless our language is up to C2 level.

Good luck with the move. I teach some local almost pro soccer kids, they are fantastic. We need more pros sport kids here, they are motivated and apply themselves in everything they touch.

In Switzerland, when teachers are ill or absent short-term, no substitution is made, and staff within the school do NOT cover for colleagues as in the UK. Lesson cancelled!

This may be true in Jura. In Bern any cancelling of lessons due to short-term absence is illegal. The lessons have to be covered, either by a substitue or by a collegue. If not, parents should inform the local school authorities. However, schools, or better the board of school has the right to cancel up to five days a year (e.g. last friday afternoon before a holiday, friday after Ascension). These days are part of the school programm. Parents are usually informed about them at the beginning of the school year.

It is also true in Zürich that lessons are generally cancelled when a teacher is absent.

In fact, my son's PE teacher has been absent due to sickness since before Christmas. No substitute has been made - the kids are simply sent home!

Re: Substitute teachers pay

It's not legal in Zurich either:

Here ist article 26 of the "Volksschulverordnung" of Zurich.

(§ 26.8 1 Der Unterricht und die Schulfächer sind für die Schülerinnen und Schüler ausgewogen auf die Schultage zu verteilen.
2 Der Stundenplan gilt in der Regel für ein Schuljahr und nennt Ort und Zeit von Unterricht und Betreuung. Halbe Lektionen sind nicht zulässig.
3 Die Unterrichts- oder Betreuungszeiten am Vormittag dauern grundsätzlich von 8 bis 12 Uhr. Sofern es die Organisation einer Schule erfordert, kann die Schulpflege die Unterrichts- oder Betreuungszeiten um höchstens 20 Minuten pro Vormittag verkürzen. Grössere Abweichungen für besondere Schulanlässe bleiben vorbehalten.)
4 Kann eine Lehrperson den Unterricht nicht erteilen, ist eine Stellvertretung zu organisieren oder eine anderweitige Betreuung zu gewährleisten.

4 If the lessons can't be covered by a teacher, one (the head-master) has to organise a substitute or to make sure that the children are supervised.

Please, as per EF rules of transparence, can you, please, also post translation as well? Thanks.
