Re: Substitute teachers pay

55 000 and upwards.

Without more details it is impossible to be more specific.

Is there much of a market for English-speaking substitute PE teachers in Swiss schools, I wonder?

Re: Substitute teachers pay

It is not really a case of doing something wrong, but just imagine it all the other way round.

"How much would someone playing the piano earn in Newcastle?"

Your question is simply far too vague and as we get a lot of questions like that on here (I guess about fifty per day, including Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays!), folk sometimes tend to work off their frustration by giving 'funny' answers.

Actually that's quite specific. The OP's question is more like:

"What's a stand-in musician earn in Newcastle"

Anyway even knowing it is now a PE teacher, that really doesn't help much. If you are talking about state schools, then you will need to teach more than PE, be fluent in the local language and spent 4 years studying to get the Swiss qualification. But the pay is good...

Re: Substitute teachers pay

I stand corrected. I'll do a re-phrase. They don't give quite the answers which were expected and/or hoped for. Better?

Re: Substitute teachers pay

To be fair, if the OP is from the UK is question makes sense. Supply teachers in the UK are paid on a specific scale, whatever the subject.
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! Long-term, cover is usually provided by University students - which would be totally illegal in UK, as you have to be qualified and served probation before you can work as supply teacher (+CRB check).

I shall go to my local school to discuss the possibility of doing some cover- and am looking forward to the reply re conditions, salary, etc. (Although Swiss by birth, my B.Ed.Hons is from UK and so is all my teaching experience). Would be very interested to hear of any who do supply cover in CH.

That's certainly the case for state schools: in private schools, however, substitute teachers are used. Unfortunately for the OP, there aren't so many of them, and the need for a substitute specialist gym teacher probably isn't so great.

Re: Substitute teachers pay

Sorry but your chances of finding work here are zero. Swiss schools employ Swiss local qualified teachers.

Re: Substitute teachers pay

State schools do. Anyway, looking forward to my meeting with the Head at my local school re my chances. I did my BAC at that school, in the village where I was born and sort of bred- prior to going to UK for 6 months = 39 years.

In the UK supply teaching is very well paid - but not in the USA for instance. Will report back when I find out. However, as I teach French/German/English more opportunities might be available than in PE, perhaps.

No - other countries qualifications are accepted (at least German and Austrian).

However there are very few substitute teachers as the initial response to a sick teacher here is to send the kids home. Only if the absence is long term is a substitute engaged. Plus there are very few dedicated PE teachers here at all (none in this country area, I believe the bigger city schools have a few).

Reminds me of a Red Dwarf line....what has an IQ of 6,000? 6,000 PE teachers.

Not true.

However, the OP may have to accept the fact that finding work as a substitute PE teacher might be difficult... unless, of course, he already has a job offer, and merely wants to find out whether they're offering him enough.

EDIT: He does.
