What does the reliever shortage mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
There is such a shortage of relievers at my work. You struggle to find [a reliever] if a staff member is sick or have an urgent appointment with doctors or specialist. Due to COVID and flu, teachers are getting sick and want to take time off . They feel guilty of taking sick leaves because it is very difficult to find relievers on a short notice.
What will it take to fix the reliever shortage?
Hire more teachers and better pay I suppose to retain them.
When we fix the reliever shortage, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
The well being of the tamariki and teachers will not be compromised.
