Answered by Swing Education
In my case, it took about 2 weeks. After filing an application, you are contacted within one or two business days by email to set up a phone interview with Swing Staff. If hired during the interview, you are contacted within a day with contract to sign, and subsequently with other forms with instructions to follow. Passing background check and TB test are the two important requirement to complete the hiring process.
It is very much better than Source4Teachers. Swing Education has revolutionized the Substitute Teachers profession.
The best answer to this is if you are flexible and open, then more assignments will be available to you.
For example, if you are more open to commuting or more willing to take last minute requests, then you
are more likely to be able to fill your schedule. It may be more difficult if you only stay in Marin. One way to have more consistent work is by developing good relationships with schools so that they make you a preferred sub, which means you have access to those jobs 24 hours earlier. In California, you also have more access to jobs if you obtain your 30-day sub-permit (Swing reimburses for all the associated costs)! Finally, we are always striving to develop new partnerships with schools in all our regions.
The requirements for needing or obtaining sub permits or credentials vary depending on the region you are interested in subbing. Permits and credentials are not necessarily required to join Swing's platform, though they are highly encouraged if available. Swing also reimburses costs associated with sub permits. Swing and schools in any region will require a background check and a TB test.
