Teachers FAQ

How and when do I get paid?  

You will get paid in your bank account at the end of the week unless you opt for next day pay.

Where are your schools located?  

We currently only work with Primary and Secondary schools in the London area. 

How do I pay my taxes?

We do not deduct any taxes from your pay. You are free to complete your own self assessment tax return form or contact us to hire our freelance accountant to do this on your behalf.

What happens if a school wants to employ me or hire me as a long-term supply teacher?

Our terms and conditions state that schools must hire a supply teacher through Worktu for a minimum of 1 month. After this period, the school is free to hire this teacher or discuss any long term supply terms independently.

Schools FAQ

How do schools pay Worktu?  

Schools simply enter their bank details when they sign up and we deduct the amount once the teacher has completed their working day.

What safeguarding and vetting checks are carried out for our teachers?

We carry out enhanced DBS checks, verify at least two references (including their most recent employer). We also check their proof of UK work eligibility, their identification documents and their qualified teaching status.

How many teachers do you have available around our school? 

We recruit teachers according to the school's location, but we already have a large bank of teachers in the London area.

How much commission do you charge for a permanent or long term supply teacher?

Our terms and conditions state that the school is required to hire a supply teacher through Worktu for a minimum of 1 month. After this period the school is free to hire this teacher or discuss any long term supply terms independently. 

What happens if we book a supply teacher and they do not turn up?

We always have back up teachers who are ready to work. We only provide 1 warning to our teachers for missed work, after which they will not be allowed to use our service.
