hi
Many of Ontario's school principals and educators are circumventing an automated system that randomly selects teachers to fill supply-teaching roles, a practice that could account for the disproportionate number of jobs that go to retirees.

Is there a link detailing pay scale for full time ece position with Waterloo board?
How do they decide years of experience and grading?

Thanks, I came across this and page 6 has some indication about the pay scale.
Waterloo board ece's are with etfo now.
Does someone has details about what pay scale they follow for full time ece's? I am also qualified teacher with OCT.

Hey Everyone, I work for TDSB as an occasional teacher and was finally able to apply for contract positions this year. Has anyone else heard any news from the interview panels? I had a couple of interviews last week (This year the interviews were scheduled from July 5-July 11) and I haven't heard back any yes or no answers. Is this normal? Also, for anyone who got a contract job, approximately how long did it take for you to hear back?

Any answers are greatly appreciated,

Thank you.

If you have French qualifications, you are definitely in demand. Otherwise, it's still difficult to get in without supply teaching for several years in most cases.

No french here lol... Is it still difficult to even get on the supply list? I'm not a teacher, just a student considering teaching and I remember looking at this thread earlier during my undergrad and people were struggling just to get on the supply list. Does science fair a little better? (my teachables would be general science, biology, chemistry and physics... I also have enough credits in phys ed. and social sciences that I could do ABQs but IDK if I'd wanna teach those subjects... kinda just wanna teach the sciences).

Also which school boards are best in terms of jobs... I know TDSB is shrinking but how is Halton or Upper Grand or even Peel? My fear is that I won't even get supply work after I graduate lol....... :(

Even with French qualifications, it is still hard to get into the GTA. Overall, I think the market has improved slightly, but it is still tough out there at the moment. I think it will take 2-3 years to improve.
